O God, beneath Thy guiding hand,
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea,
And when they trod the wintry strand,
With prayer and psalm they worshiped Thee.
Thou heardst, well pleased, the song, the prayer-
Thy blessing came; and still its power
Shall onward through all ages bear
The memory of that holy hour.
Laws, freedom, truth and faith in God
Came with those exiles o'er the waves ;
And where their pilgrim feet have trod,
The God they trusted guards their graves.
And here Thy name, God of Love,
Their children's children shall adore,
Till these eternal hills remove
And spring adorns the earth no more.

Al came to Bates from far-away Barbados,
bringing with him his vicious tennis cut, his rau-
cous laugh, his kingly bearing, and his bum tenor,
or is it baritone, voice. He says woman is a mys-

With his soon-to-be-purchased demon motorcycle, his
ivory-inlaid mandolin, his go-get-em spirit, his ear-
nestness, Al will go far in his chosen field, be it re-
ligion or business.

We are just beginning to suspect Evelyn of be-
ing romantic — oh, yes, ROMANTIC in capitals.
According to her, romance runs somewhat to a
thrilled contemplation of manly qualities and char-
acteristics. From a quiet, unassuming little lady
she has become a talkative, somewhat sentimental
person of flapper tendencies. Reason? Emma. It
is, however, merely a passing fancy and will wear
away, leaving our sensible, understanding, very de-
mure and optimistic Evelyn.

"Is-a-bel-le, can you get that problem?"
Mary doesn't make much noise — proctors don't
anyway, I guess — but just look at her record! She's
the kind of girl we all look at — and sigh — we could
never be like that. Latin Comp done a week ahead
of time; yes, that has an appeal for us, but some-
how — And you know she's got dimples — dimples —
ever notice? Well, Mary, we've got to hand it to

Since Arthur has been one of Mr. Bates' com-
muters via shank's mare and the Figure 8 through-
out his college career, we have not become quite so
well acquainted with him as we might have had he
lived with us on the campus. The habitat of this
young man seems to be Hedge Laboratory. His
life is not all burettes, beakers, and bunsen burners,
however, for it is known that he makes intermittent
sojourns to that part of the campus where dwell the
fair ladies of the institution, be it fair weather or
otherwise. Anyway, he is one of Mr. Higgins'
worthy assistants and a more efficient one we could
not ask for.

Here she comes — our slender, willowy Marian,
the girl who can do almost anything, who is a
basketball shark, a tennis fiend, and a lyric soprano —
yes indeed, a LYRIC soprano with emphasis on the
soprano. She is demure on the outside, but oh,
what hidden depths! And by the way, Marian, old
dear, how many times have you refused the sparkling
diamond? We know they are many and to the
point, as the fellar says. Here's how, and may you
never forget old Twenty-One and her true-blue

We do not flatter Carl when we say that he is
prince of good fellows, for he is that — and more.
He has been successful in all of his undertakings,
Romance, too, has claimed a large share of his
attention and his successes in this field have been
as pronounced as his triumphs in other ventures.
Successful student, good sport, a staunch friend,
ever a gentleman — the type which '21 is proud to
claim as its own.

"A man that blushes is not quite a brute."
Born Nov. 3, 1897, Auburn, Me.; Edward Little
High School; Varsity Hockey, 1, 2, 3.
Bernard is one of our off-campus students. He
is such a quiet boy that aside from the fact that
he attends classes we don't know much about him.
He is a speedy boy (on skates) as he has demon-
strated more than once on the hockey team. His
curly hair and pink cheeks make him a favorite
among the ladies, but he doesn't waste his talents
on the campus. He is quiet and undemonstrative,
but his twinkling eye shows an appreciation for
the humor of life. The quiet kind is the one which
brings surprises, and we may yet live to learn that
Bernard of '21 is one of its famous men.

The gold-plated arm elastics are unanimously
awarded to Dusty for his inimitable dexterity in
wielding his mother tongue (as well as that of sev-
eral aunts and uncles). In short, where Dusty is,
there's sure to be a crowd, (or a woman—but a new
one) and every indication points to him as the
"only and original" gloom dispeller. Some men's
hearts are reached through their stomachs, but
Dusty gets in through their ears, and the per-
manence of the impression is registered by an ever-
lasting spirit of camaraderie in the hearts of all.

"Bondie" he is called, but believe me there are
no strings fastened to this boy's coat tail. If ye be-
lieve it not, who cares? His is the life of the free.
So variable are Willard's emotions, passions, and am-
bitions that it is really most difficult to even attempt
a suggestion as to the dominant motives behind his
actions. He seeks to enjoy everything in life from
the realm of the after-the-party-clean-up-gang in
Rand Hall to the lures of Terpsichore. "Bondie" is
a good sport and one who is always ready to em-
bark upon any kind of expedition. To go further
into the innermost recesses of this man's being-
would require more space than is allotted for these
impressions. Let it suffice to say he is one of the
most enterprising chaps of '21, sure to succeed in
the big things in life of which he is capable.

Here comes Ada, small but oh, how business-
like! Just you notice the way she marches along-
straight for one particular place, never turning-
aside for little things, nor allowing herself to be
distracted by the more frivolous Batesites. Not
that she is a grind or a plugger — Heavens, no!
Why, she is one of the happiest kids on the campus,
and has a smile ready at any time— day or night.
She is efficient, that's all.

Here's an attractive crab who never supported a
college activity in her life. The college would feel
nattered to know that you considered its affairs
"those old things" — but it isn't so much to be won-
dered at, if your comparisons are drawn from those
delightful house parties at Tacoma. You can give
a good time if you have the "I don'twanter" and
lately you have been docile enough to be in leading-
strings. They do say there is just one cure for the
parlor bolshevist — and that's the kitchen. Goin^-
to try it?

Viv has absorbed some of the college quiet since
she came — cloistered halls and balls — but she still
has a temper, and she is going to scalp everybody
when she is in it. But it is such a funny little
temper that you can't do anything but stand back
and laugh. Viv doesn't mind a bit of a roughhouse
and she is great with the shillalah. All the kids on
the street know her. It wouldn't be surprising to
see her playing with them — you do now, don't you
Viv? You're a good little scout always, and there's
a lot of good sense in that head of yours.

Brad's the sort that has a firm idea of right and
wrong — right is right and all that isn't right is
wrong. No half-way business about Rufus. What
a serious person you are, Brad, except when you
giggle. Twenty-One appreciates that giggle and
also that earnestness of yours. What would we do
without it in hockey, as you crouch there in that
old brown skirt at the goal ready to kill the ball. —
You win, Brad, every time.

"Sammie — Sammie Brewster! Will you rub my
back before you go to bed?" "Say, Sammie — fill my

Sammie, Rand Hall physician, regular old scout, best
ever. She'll do anything she can and chuckle while
she's doing it — and for recreation, she sings. You
don't believe it? Just come into Kate's room some
night when she's putting Kate to bed — sneak in
cautiously and hear her chant the ballad of "My
Old Horse, Napoleon." For an all-around, good-
natured, optimistic kid — see Sammie.

In every graduating class there is always sure
to be several characters whose versatility manifests
itself in many ways outside the class rooms. Frank,
or Professor Pathe as he is often called, is this sort
of a fellow. We know him as a Chem. shark, as a
man who dabbles in art and literature, and as a
super-graceful shimmie artist. These combined
qualities resulted in his winning a commission as
a Second Lieutenant who was prevented from going
across only by the end of the war. Some call him
a crab, but he is that before breakfast only, and
as the day progresses, we find in him a most agree-

This veritable greyhound of the cinders cares
naught for the laws governing speed and endur-
ance. Many an opponent has been forced to give
him the lead and be content to watch his heels as
he crosses the line to victory. Once upon a time
Richard's so perfect resemblance to his twin brother
Ray gave rise to some very amusing situations, but
we trust that the young lady in question has finally
succeeded in distinguishing one from the other. If
Dick is as successful in the medical profession as he
has been on the cinders, we feel sure that he will
come out on top.

"Cam" was once told by a girl that he had brains,
and you would never question the truth of this
statement, if you really knew him. Musician, art-
ist, mechanic, athlete, preacher, and LOVER — he
is all these and more — a Procrastinator, or better,
a Sport. Cam's greatest weakness is a seven-forty-
a-m-snooze while Greek is in session. Can you
blame him? His greatest need is an alarm clock,
or a "Maid." Chief failing — his age. His great-
est ambition is to convince "Prexy" that "it was
necessary." Here's luck to you — none of us could.

As his record implies, Eddie is one of our athletes
possessing- ability in almost all departments of sport,
but starring in football. During his Junior year,
Eddie caught the dancing craze, and is now an
enthusiastic promoter of dancing parties. When it
comes to humor, he is in a class by himself, for he
has a supply of jokes which he brought with him
his Freshman year. (See quotation above.) When
this youth leaves Bates, a real live wire is gone and
the place where he lands will be lucky.

Could the new "N" rays of Ahmed Hassan be
harnessed for our use, or could the mystic powers
of the Orient be applied to show the inside thoughts
of our friends' and neighbors' minds, some of us
would be scorched by the terrific impact of those
rays. But by the laws of natural selection, there
would be those individuals who would turn aside
any fiery shafts and would come unburned from the
terrific onslaught. Such a man would be a clean,
neat, gentlemanly person ; probably a quiet, thorough
man with a straight, level gaze and a good, alert,
happy personality; a man well liked by his fellows.

Lois is the peacemaker of Twenty-One; she's al-

to her and have them soothed — if you want to nurse

guess that her realest ambition is to understand
folks. Is it, Lois?

In spite of the crabbing tendencies ascribed to
her by some, Ruth isn't such a terrible person to
live with — ask her roomy. Always ready to do any-
thing you ask if she can possibly spare the time,
she is one of our reserve forces. And she knows
how to have a good time, which is more than some
of us appear to accomplish. Moreover, Ruth is a
literary person and that adds a lot — Nicht war,

Theda is one of our serious people; in fact, about

two years we have been discovering an enormous
store of jollity previously unimagined. We are

the most good, and her disposition, joyfully resist-
ing the rougher edges of human nature, continues
purposeful, happy, and smiling. Some of us envy

Born July 12, 1898, Portland, Maine; Portland
High; Y. W. C. A.; Enkuklios; Entre Nous; U. A.
C. C; Alethea; Portland Club.
Ethel is a quiet little dear who would have us
consider her truly wicked; eh, Ethel? Worldly wise
and skilled in the combat of life. To her, men are
the supreme source of interest — when they are not
a bore. Oh, yes, even Ethel finds them thus at
times — she told us so. So Ethel pretends to be a
vamp — and although her real self is not concerned
with the complete comprehension of the male, we are
completely fooled, and hand her the honor of being
the Class Vamp.
P.S. — We were in error — and apologize.
CLARENCE ALFRED FIELD, B.S.
Born January 21, 1899, in Auburn, Maine; Ed-
ward Little High School.
We do not feel quite so well acquainted with
Clarence as we do with some of our other class-
mates, because he lives in Auburn and never talks
much. He is known as "Silent" because he never
says anything except in class when he is called on,
but then he always comes through with the right
answer. He is a scientist, in several branches, but
he is more than that, for he can write poetry when
he tries. Most of us remember his rhymed account
of the Chem. 3 course. He is a hard worker, and
we predict he will get there, in spite of the fact that
he never advertises himself.

After trying to scurry up something from Dite's
past and failing miserably (why, we couldn't even
discover that she'd ever eaten any bananas at night
time) we have decided that we'll have to summarize
briefly her chief characteristics and let it go at
that. Let's see now, she's quiet, pleasant, cheerful,
leisurely, lanky, rather pretty, rather witty, and
altogether nice to look upon. SH! Something else,
too, a secret — she's studious!

Born Feb. 24, 1899, Lewiston, Maine; E. L. H.
S.; Entre Nous; Enkuklios; U. A. C. C; Outing
Club; Hockey, 1; Baseball, 1.
Esther has never caused a ripple on the surface
of the class, but she has been handy when 1921
wanted to borrow anything, from a couple of silver
tea-sets to a car or two. In her Sophomore year,
she took up surveying with noticeable results as
seen on her left hand — a beauty, isn't it? But don't
be envious — you know we all haven't her qualifica-
tions: a good disposition, a knowledge of cooking
and housekeeping, and a dimple.

Doesn't she look wide-awake in this picture?
But alas! appearances are so deceitful, because you
can nearly always find her curled up on her couch,
sound asleep. What matters it that the hours slip,
or that lessons are unprepared, when she can out-
shine us all in class. And, by the way, that dim-
pled smile has done much to brighten up the class
and to make the spirit of 1921 ideal.
ARNOLD LINCOLN GANLEY, A.B.
"Dip," "Link," "Lightening"
"Oh my Gawsh!"
How we admire a fellow who is characterized by
an even, sanguine temperament and whose disposi-
tion is remarkable for its amiability. Again, how
we envy him as he excludes the word worry from
his vocabulary. Yes, we've got to hand it to
"Link"; he is the personification of nonchalance and
optimism. We fellows like to visit him in his "hang
out" — room 31, Parker Hall — and hear him jazz that
old banjo so eloquently. In turn we are always
glad to have him enter our sanctum sanctorum and
interrupt our study with some of that droll humour
which is his specialty. Arnold is an exceptionally
good student, but above all a "simon pure" good
fellow and — "It's always fair weather when good
fellows get together * * *"

Barb is the jolliest person you could imagine, and
a veritable heart-breaker. Gee, Barb, that's a ter-
rible rep! And do you know, you let yourself in
for a deal of something or other when you cut your
hair, because it makes you look cuter than ever;
at least that's what we hear whispered on the other
side of the campus, and the girls like it so much
they forget to be jealous. Here's to you, Barb.
Don't let that grin wear off.

Owen is one of our returned World War veterans,
having spent over a year in France with the A. E. F.
To know him is to like him. A good friend, an
agreeable companion and a good sport, he has won
a warm place in the hearts of us all during the two
years he has been with us. But don't let that quiet,
unassuming manner of his deceive you, for beneath
it there is a driving and persistent force that in-
sures his success in whatever he undertakes.

Hockey, 4; "B."
Leroy comes directly from Vinalhaven where
they grow good men. He is one of those boys
blessed with an abundance of both brain and brawn.
Whether it is on the athletic field or in the class
room, he shows that same old "do or die" spirit
and always comes up smiling. That same cheerful
smile of his has won him many a friend on both sides
of the campus — a good many more, perhaps, "across
the way," than he is aware of. You have started
the game right, "Grossie"; keep it up.

Mabel is ever ready to lend a helping hand. She
even makes out Freshman schedules. She has a re-
markably good disposition, yet how she did sputter
when she heard the Freshmen's term of probation
had been lengthened to February first. Although
Mabel's tastes are scientific rather than literary, she
knows every line of Carlyle's "Hero Worship." Her
specialty, however, is ornithology and although the

she hasn't done? She is brilliant, even to the point
of irony at times (beware, Glad, don't overwork it.
She is genial when she wishes, she has perfect con-

Mr. Hall from Buckfield made his first appear-
ance with the class of 1921 when Mr. Bates' army
was organized in 1918. His demeanor gives him
the appearance of an earnest and sincere student.
Far be it from me to let the true facts be known.
Harry sang tenor efficiently in the glee club two
years and was one of its leading vamps. There are
times when Harry is very, very serious. He seems
to be meditating on things far away from our sordid
sphere. It must be that he is a philosopher. Other-
wise, — well, we will not think of it. The impres-
sion that he has made on the co-eds and the tribute
that he has received from them are listed elsewhere.
FRANK HAMLIN, A.B.
Born September 8, 1901, Balasore, India; Jordan
High, Lewiston, Me.; Honor Student.
A brilliant person is Frank, truly brilliant, a
thing which can be said of comparatively very few-
persons. His cynically pessimistic tendencies can
be laid at the door of his extreme youth. Really,
Frank, you wouldn't look half so worse if you'd
smile oftener. That seems to be your chief fault.
As a critic, you are very interesting and show signs
of unusual ability, but because of the common fail-
ing of humanity, we are likely to despair of you if
you don't grin once in a while; you know, people
judge extensively by appearances.
EDWIN JAMES HARRIMAN, B.S.
Born September 9, 1897, Randolph, Maine;
Gardiner High School; Greek Play.
Here is the steady, dependable lad who has
ploughed through his four years of college with the
sincerest interest in the navy and a little romance
on the side. "Eddie" had a job cut out for him
when he came back from the navy and had to
make up the spring term's work, of the Sopho-
more year, but he came through nobly and caught
up with his class. When he begins teaching school
in the wilds of Vermont next year, he will have the
advantage over a good many of his classmates. He
will have his home and friends to retire to after a
strenuous day's work, and some say that is the su-
preme satisfaction of life.

"Behold the man" for whom Rand has no terrors.
He used to stand at the bottom of the stairs in Rand
and pick out the best looker as she came down.
"Les" has steadied down now, though. His favor-
ite resort in the beautiful spring-time is Mt. David.
One can't always be sure who he is with, though. Al-
though "Les" lived in the city he is better known
to us than most town fellows because he spent the
first year in J. B. and another in Parker with his
brother Eddie. "Les" has been one of Uncle Sam's
"gobs" and he still occasionally revisits the scene of
his warlike activities. He thinks college life is
rather dull (because of the classes). We extend
our sympathies to the world when "Les" gets to
tearing around, trying to make it speed up.

Oh, no, she's only a co-ed; she sings — Out Loud! —

Every Prof, knows better than to expect her before
at least ten minutes after the last bell. Even Dave
looks anxiously up Rand Hall stairs, only after he
has waited for one-half hour or more. But late or

Bunny hails from the hills o' Hampshire and
though she landed in our midst a month late Fresh-
man year, it only evidenced to us that Bunny is slow
and easy, but she gets there just the same. Bunny's
only outdoor sport is chasing cats on spring even-
ings—ask her about it. If you want to know what
is going on downtown in the movie line, she can al-
ways give you the desired information because Bun-
ny is a movie fan. Perhaps we like her best
because she is always cheery and good-natured.

Eunice is a corking good scout and a heap of
fun whenever you go in to see her. You'll generally
find her at her desk of an evening, with the dull
green shade on her lamp fixed just so, and a fat
note-book spread open before her. Maybe you're
thirsty and would like to borrow her cup — you
don't need to disturb her, for you've used it before,
and it's always in the same place.
P.S. — She was "captain actual" of the second
team basketball — and kept 'em in peppy condition.

We learned early in our college course to go to
Dece for many things, especially for all kinds of
doses and the best divinity fudge ever made. No
wonder this latter accomplishment has made her so
popular at Parker Hall! We girls, however, have
found that her domestic ability is almost unlim-
ited. She has always presided so well over the
chafing dishes at our good old spreads that cher-
ished memories of Dece and her culinary art will
remain with us till we meet again.

Laura is our star bluffer — an honest-to-goodness
jolly kid, who knows how to have a good time, but
when she shone forth as president of Stu Gee — ye
gods! We never knew of anything in the form of
good fun that Laura doesn't know how to do —
and we probably never shall. When asked if there
was anything she didn't like to do, she looked a
trifle puzzled and then remarked with a little laugh,
"I don't know of anything."

M'arg is our literary genius and has all the at-

form of amusement is observing life in its human
manifestations. As a problem, she rivals an
entire calculus; as a human, she is a dissector of
experience and a cavernous gulf of curiosity — she
would like to have known every experience in cap-
tivity or out; as a comrade she's witty, interesting,
and ready for anything. Here's to you, creature of
moods, odd mixture of everything: here's how, and

A creature of moods is Florence, who still sails
calmly on trying, perhaps unconsciously, to conceal
her moodiness. She's good in anything she tries
to do and she isn't noisy about it either. In spite
of her Puritanical heredity, she proceeds to be won-
derfully modern in her point of view and she is the
most naive young person you are likely to meet.
She has two hobbies, needlework and Charlie.

Holding down a manager's job on the Student
and Mirror speaks well for his ability; doing his
turn on the track every day during the season shows
his determination. The fact that he roomed with
the same guy for four years is sufficient indication
that he has great forbearance and a remarkably
even disposition. Bill won't have to worry about
getting along in the world, no matter what line he
may take up.

Fran is the kid that knows how to take care of
herself. She doesn't work herself all out the day
before a game, and then go round saying, "I'm
so tired." No, that's not Fran. Just before the
battle begins, she goes calmly about on visits to the
various nerve-racked members of the team and
soothes their worries, quiets their fears; and it's
not till everyone is coolly ready that she allows
herself to remark fearfully, "I'm so nervous."

"Kik-ki-kik-kik-HAW-HAW-HAW!!" Floor and
walls tremble, dishes dance, eating ceases. Far
down the hall a green waiter stands as though pet-
rified, having just poured a bowl of gravy down
Bill Hodgman's neck! The noise? Hutch is merely
showing his huge appreciation. Now, this does not
mean that George is ethereal at all — far from it.
He is, rather, solid and methodical; we remember
him as preacher, poet, salesman, debater, high
diver, and even small town vamp! A place awaits

he does love lady scientists' fudge. He is ready to

to a sermon. He gets all A's in History. Yet, poor
boy, he can't help it. As a neighbor remarked soon
after his birth (not long ago, at that), "Too bad
that boy of Johnson's ain't quite right." This ab-
normality, sad to say, seems to extend to all other

Bob entered upon his collegiate career with the
class of 1919, and remained out of college for two
years in order to take part in the Imperial German
Government. His scholastic pursuits are charac-

relations with his fellow-students by dignified but
cordial comradeship; and his philosophy of life by
an unprejudiced receptiveness to new ideas and a
vigorous sense of humor.

It is perhaps strange but when we think of Rae,
we think of Don, and vice versa. They seem

Read a good old Southern love story with a hero
in it who shows all those laudable and gentlemanly

North and West with men of strength and daring
and manhood. Ponder for a few moments over the
hero of a story of the East, where grace, polish, and
style abound. "Bill' Langley is the composite of
all these fine qualities. He is the hero of the story

predict that whatever career she chooses will prove
a "shining" one.

Who is the fellow that we see over in the zool-
ogy laboratory six or eight hours a day, noting a
few fine points in the embryological development of
the chick or preparing slides for Pom? We all shall
watch with interest and admiration his work at Har-
vard Medic for the next four years, and we know he
will make some Doctor. But we must not forget
how Mack can get off with the crack of the gun and
tear down the cinder path for a hundred or two-
twenty yard dash. Whose pretty picture is that
on his desk in 16 Parker? Time will tell.

I dreamed — I dreamed she kidded Ex-President
Wilson and George Washington. I dreamed I saw
her on the Midway, or was it opposite Henry
Irving, or was she the Russian Ballerina? Any-
way, it was something for which she had trained
for four years — and thoroughly, too.
As a matter of fact, Marcelline does everything
thoroughly and when she "commences" the world
will sit up and take notice — for Marcelline gets what
she goes out after, and goes out after what she

"Did you ever hear anything like it! I gave
them a piece of my mind ! Why, they're perfect
fools!" — and Eddie is off again on one of her thrill-
ing but utterly harmless tirades, while the rest of
us are doubled up helplessly on the couch. Eddie is
an enthusiast; whatever appeals to her (and there
is little indeed that doesn't), brings forth an irre-
sistible bubbling over of Eddie, and we smile as
we watch her accomplish things in her busy little
way. She is very charming, too, as hostess of
Enkuklios teas and receptions.

Quiet, purposeful, and inordinately cheerful is
Dot, sometimes called "Dottie" by those who wish to
show affection and forget the inappropriateness of
the diminutive. Dot is one of our most logical stu-
dents — that is to say, she studies logically and her
notebooks are the neatest of any in the class.
Success to you, scout; keep right on living in the
same unobtrusive, worth-while way.

Where's his home town? That's hard to tell, for
his circle of friends hail from all points along the
coast. What's his hobby? Ah, Business? That's
it, an embryonic Wall Street lion. The two years
that "Lewy" has been with us he has shown himself
a well-versed lad, and he is bound to be the man of
the hour. Mr. Moore is a Fine Arts student, and
maybe that accounts for the admirable collection of
"Pulchrae Feminse" that cover the walls over his desk.

Who is the man with that wonderful and per-
suasive voice? ''Brother" Morris. "Ed" stepped
into our midst as a Junior. No longer does he plow
his weary way to New Vineyard. To what end?
To expound the gospel to the natives, of course.
Yes, but now that "they" are one, he has forsaken
the monastery for Auburn, and his week-end trips
take him only as far as South Paris. Morris's ora-
tory, debating and singing together with his genial
spirit have won him a place in the hearts of Bates
men and women.

Isabel was the most promising girl in our class,
until she met Grandpa. At least she was so consid-
ered by persons of discernment. Our Izzie is a svelt
and charming young lady — very Scotch — who is de-
veloping rather coquettish tendencies in hysterical
haste. Cheer up, Izzie, they're pleasant while thev
last. It's a HECTIC life, isn't it?

Harry is not the type of man to spend much time
in advertising his accomplishments. Harry is
never content unless he is busy. When he has
not been managing tennis, participating in track
events or instructing Freshmen at the Chem Lab, he
has amused himself by doing such things as at-
tending Shriners' meetings and their frequent
dances, taking the census for Uncle Sam, and ad-
ministering the Baptismal rites upon the table ac-
coutrements of a down-town eating establishment.
He certainly believes that variety is the spice of

"Phil 5 '

Phil is a hard working man. He is not only a
student and a bluffer, but he spends hours and hours
every week in a shoe store down town. Faith yes,
he's a shoe clerk, and whiles away his extra time
running across to the drug store for sodas. He is
somewhat of a Spanish shark and has a way with
the ladies, we have heard it remarked. But he's
not a ladies' man — not any way you look at it;
heavens no! He is sensible.

Charlie entered 1921 at the beginning of our
Junior year, his previous years of study being spent
at the Bangor Seminary of Theology. He soon
gained the name of the Apostle on account of his
week-end preaching trips. Throughout the two
years that he has been with us he has lived in con-
sistence with his profession. He is a man of de-
cided convictions, yet tactful in their application.
Upon different occasions we have been privileged to
hear expressions of his musical ability and we
know that this talent will help him much in his

Born April 19, 1899, Ogunquit, Maine; West-

M. C. A., 1, 2, 3, 4.
"Perk" is a keen-eyed, clear-headed product of
the Pine Tree State. Ambition is his middle name.
Once he makes up his mind to do a thing, you
may be sure that the thing will be done. While
"Perk" is not carrying away any keys or prizes for
scholarship, yet he is a hard-working student, and
is known as a logical thinker. It is said that he
has been practising off campus the experience and
training in public speaking gained in Oratory
classes. Leon stands well with his classmates and
is recognized as a man of ability. We know that
when he gets his sheepskin he will make a name
for himself in his future work.

"Pete," or "Charlie," whichever you wish to call
him, is the fellow who always greets his friends
with a cordial "Hi there" and a pleasant smile.
And, too, he is one of the most methodical chaps you
ever saw. In classes he takes no back seat for
anyone. "Charlie" has participated in one way or
another in most everything from assistant in sur-
veying to manager of baseball. Above all things,
"Charlie Pete" has shattered and cast to the four
winds "Doc" Britan's theory that there is no such
thing as love at first sight.

feel like the very deuce, and I've got to see Buzz
at dinner and if she sees me looking like this — !
Well, I'm going to that dance, that's all!" And
she goes, too. A rather graceful mixture of charm
and business efficiency is Phil, and a very pleasant
personage to talk with. We are inclined to believe
that if she has a hobby it's quoting Bob. You know
you do, Phil, so don't argue. Any time you are
desirous of seeing her and have made the mistake
of coming to Rand, rectify your error by hasting
to the Qual — ten to one she's there; it's a favorite
hang-out of hers.

"She wolde weep if that she sawe a mous caught
in a trappe." "Sh, don't tell a soul." She's raising
an orphaned family on a pipette. There are white
ones, gray ones, brown ones, waltzing ones. Semper
sciential "Oh! Pikey, how could you!" Your smile
is your most scientific possession. Just think of the
yards of tissue ribbon it cut from the rotary micro-
tome! It opens forbidden doors to you, kills your
cats, feeds your mice, incubates your eggs, counts
pendulums, mends distilling apparatus, and makes
100% alcohol. It even swerves "Pom" from his
path, yet "Pikey" does not realize. She is smiling.

Reader, 1, 2, 3; Mirror Board.
Artist, orator, musician, terpischorean, physicist !
George is one of our most versatile performers;
many an audience has been convulsed by his ready
flowing wit on the Glee Club trips. He is a com-
bination of epicurean, pessimist, and diligent stu-
dent. But this college life is just play for George —
his real work is as a salesman and he is an expert.
Upon graduation it is rumored that he has a con-
tract waiting for him to sell palm leaf fans to the
Eskimos. We think he will get away with it.
CARLETON HOBART RAND, A.B.
Born June 15, 1898, Lewiston, Maine; Jordan
Carleton is a little shy of Rand Hall activities,
but do not put this down as due entirely to bash-
fulness. His very name signifies that he has as
much right there as any other person. Carleton is
another one of those fellows of whom we see very
little on the campus except at classes. He is the
shortest man in the class. His one real objection
to this is that oftentimes he finds it necessary to
strike out before breakfast to make connections with
that seven-forty class. Never mind, Carleton, re-

the sweetly appealing notes, there comes flashing
the refrain. How graceful Gabby is, in her cos-
tumed folk dancing ! ' How sweetly and yet viva-
ciously she has engineered Le Petit Salon this year!
Whatever 1921 has demanded the response has
always been the same. Never mind, Gabe, Connie
did get "the shortest girl."

When we think of rock-ribbed isles and balmy
sea breezes we always think of Mel, for we know
that salty zephyrs and time enduring granite (the
surroundings from which Mel came to us) are true
symbols of vivacity, versatility and sterling worth,
which qualities are all synonyms for the name Mel.
He certainly made up admirably for the year that
he spent away from us. In the sacred halls be-
neath the shelter of David's Mountain none have
ever questioned his right of admittance "verboten"
to its athletic contests.

When "M. P." bursts forth in the above vernac-
ular, rest assured that he has something beyond
the realm of the commonplace to relate. He is of
the open. Mention fishing and immediately he is
"rearing-to-go." He, too, is a veritable walking
census. In exactly two minutes, one and three-fifths
seconds he can give the name and life history of the
entire population of his home town. Maurice is an
ardent supporter of all college athletics and backs
them up to the Nth degree. Maurice is a perfect
gentleman, and a good fellow well met.

Did you ever stand in the front room of a cot-
tage by the sea, with the wind blowing a gale out-
side, when someone opens the door and a gust of a
sweeping nor'easter swirls in and around, and near-
ly knocks you over? Or did you ever stand behind
some convenient shelter and recoil in the face of the
explosion of a couple of tons of TNT? Or did you
ever get upon the wrong side of your litter, and
then be greeted by one that seems to lift you out of
the depths of despair and perch you on the pinnacle
of rosy optimism? — If not, you haven't met Kelly —
our noisy, salty Kelly — as the Rotarians would say,
"an exemplary peptomist."

Jack's years and even his moments of college life

student and professor as the best known and most
popular man on or off the campus.

Movie operator, stenog, Politics Club prexy, whist
expert, cook, warbler of songs, gobbler of Rand Hall
fudge, choir steerer, — these are a few of this blond
boy's doings. He is all set to meet life; that old
smile, that optimism, that courtesy and thoughtful-

Rufus is a happy-go-lucky damsel who is always

ask her. And she's awf'ly good at having a good
time, too. She's a rather breezy young miss and
very decent when it comes to lending things. By the
way, Rufus, your room is taking on a rather awful
aspect since you've taken to playing double Can-

We gaze at thee with awe and wonder. You are
not the usual kind for a phenomenon of human na-
ture. In spite of our glances, you are as uncon-
scious as a celebrity before the movie camera. A
whisper passes along the back seat in chapel. The
Freshmen turn and stare. "The 6.30 car from Sa-
battus for four years and she's still smiling!" How
soothing your voice was to Pa Gould's disturbed ears
after our miserable failures. And would you believe
it? She's the '21 girls' star first baseman.

Why is Maine famous? Spuds. One might at
first say that, but any deliberation would reveal the
real reason for the State's prestige — Gardiner.
And how, you ask, does Gardiner qualify as the
holder of this pre-eminence? The Sphinx answers,
S-T-O-N-I-E-R! Essentially a mother of great
athletes and good fellows, Gardiner combined all the
virtues of her sons in one shining example, and sent
to us Jim. She has every reason for her pride
and so have we, because Jim's many-sided nature,
his loyalty, generosity, perseverance and fight, has
brought him fame.

Wherever Cracker goes that contagious smile of his
is sure to cast a beam of sunshine. Roland's spe-
cialty is chemistry. He is a most faithful disciple of

plucky little captain who made that thrilling end-
run, tallying the only score which made us victorious
over the Senior class.

Orator, student, gentleman, good fellow — these
are the attributes by which Obie has acquired for
himself a foremost place in the regard of 1921.
Those who do not know "Obie" might say that he is
a pessimist. But such is not True for we know that
his moments of apparent gloom are merely periods
of longing for a time when he may return to his be-
loved home town of Phillips in the beautiful but
far away Rangeley district of Maine. A gentleman
in the fullest sense of the word, tasteful in dress,
quiet in manner and courteous in speech, is it any
wonder that the class of 1921 is proud to have him
as a member?

A man whose middle name should be persever-

in realizing worth-while ideals. At college he has
accomplished much, mentally, physically and socially.
It is said that he can grow a mustache over night.
Yes, he looks serious and is indeed quiet, yet he

keen sense of humor which is the delight of all those
who know him. An excellent student, a good mixer,
and a true friend — that's Eddie.

of the Spoffordites and a very active member. And
she's able to hold her own as an orator, knows how

"Daniel" M. Webster came to us in the middle of
the year 1918. Married and matured, his attitude
toward his college activities has been one of purpose-
ful and resolute application. Along with a very
creditable scholastic career he has, during his stay
at Bates, ministered to the Baptist church in Wool-
wich, Maine. In athletics he looks down upon all
comers, having won for Bates and the class of '21
his full share of interclass and collegiate honors. We
wish him the success due his sincerity, helpfulness
and earnest endeavors.

Do you want to do Spanish, play tennis, go to
"Qual," or buy chocolate? Just go to Clarice, with
a cheerful grin she will fulfil every demand. Do you
want to see stars? Then get in her way when she
is after that basketball and you will see them all.
Sturdy and staunch, Clarice is one of the best "all-
around" girls in our class. Y. W., athletics or so-
ciety finds a willing worker in her. We know that
you will earn your white cap with honors at Johns
Hopkins, Clarice, and we only ask that you do not
"treat 'em too rough."

Here comes Norma, a white and gold and pink
mixture of efficiency and good looks, striding grace-
fully toward Monie's English, as the last bell rings.
Goff Hill is hard, Norma, but good experience withal,
and the training did you much good in class ath-
letics. We have our doubts as to anything being
beyond your reach, and when it comes to putting
things through, well, Norma, you're there.

as never glance at the papers, evince not the slight-
est interest in athletics, we beg to present for their
acquaintance, Carleton Low Wiggin, athlete par ex-

Here is an all-round man of 1921. When speak-
ing of his relations with the opposite side of Col-
lege Street he is rather reticent. As his record may
infer, "Don" is quite a scientist and as such it is
not strange that he has the aforesaid character-
istics. In addition to all this, he finds time not only
to attain a very high average in ranks but also time
to get the best out of life.

Sophomore Prize Debater; Phi Beta Kappa; Honor
This son of New Hampshire who entered with
us in 1917 was so extremely quiet that we hardly
knew him until some of his exploits leaked out.
Loys is undoubtedly one of our best students, hav-
ing received the Phi Kappa honor which honor we
all envy him. Although rather modest he is indeed
a real live wire. As editor-in-chief of the Bates
Student he made a name for himself by showing his
efficiency as a business man. Still waters run deep,
therefore perhaps this will assist those who wish to
know him better.

"Don" was one of the first to come into promi-

won and the assistantships held we know that Bates
will miss this member of our class and the com-
munity into which he goes will receive a worker.

Bob is a bona fide member of the class, having
been one of its number through four happy years.
As an athlete he has served his class in every de-
partment. As a producer of jazz music he is unex-
celed. His services are sought far and near. Withal,
he has found time to be a good fellow on both sides
of the campus. Bob is a hard worker, otherwise he
would not be a true '21 man. We will always re-
member him as a ready sport, a live wire and a
EVELYN HENRIETTA YEATON, A.B.
Born Richmond, Maine, March 24, 1899; Rich-
mond High; Y W. C. A.; Enkuklios.
Here comes Evelyn, tripping lightly along from
the library. Yes, she works hours over there, and
is always cheerful and smiling when you see her,
too. How do you do it, Evelyn, always so happy and
satisfied? By the way, who is that with her? One
of the Bukers; doubtless she knows which one,
though it hasn"t always been so doubtless, we have
heard. Evelyn is quiet but not silent. You don't
know the difference? Well, come into Fran's room
some evening and find out.
CARL RICHARD YOUNG, A.B.
Born in Lewiston, Maine, Dec. 14, 1899; Jordan
High School, Lewiston, Maine; Sophomore Prize De-
bate; Forum, 3; Debating Council, 4.
Here we have Carl Young; we haven't much on
this boy. A man of few words unless discussing
some favorite topic, then a steady flow of logical
argument. It seems to be second nature for him t:>
use his persuasive powers. That he does not spend
his time uselessly is evident from the fact that he
is always busily occupied when on the campus. He
is an ardent pursuer of "Monie's" English and Prof.
"Mac's" Education. It seems to be the idea of some
that to be a big man it is necessary to be a great
athlete of one kind or another. However, we are
sure that "Youngie" will make up for this accom-
plishment by winning renown through knowledge
of other things. Although Carl has not lived with
us on the campus, those who know him think he is
as cordial and genial a friend as one could wish to
DANIEL BRACKETT NEWCOMER
Born Evart, Michigan, Aug. 18, 1898; attended
High School, Harpers Ferry, W. Vir; left Bates
November, 1918; served in Aviation Corps, San
Antonio, Texas; died Feb. 1, 1918.
"Danny" was with us only a year, but most of
us knew him and loved him for his sunny disposi-
tion, his big, fine, manly ways, and his true South-
ern courtesy. He was big in mind as well as in
body, a good student, an earnest Christian, and a
real gentleman. He left us early in his second year
to serve his country, and before another year had
passed he left us for his final home. It is a matter
of grief and pride to the class that Dan Newcomer
of '21 died for his country.
FRANK JOSEPH DORNER
On the death of Frank Dorner, the Class of 1921
lost one of its most enthusiastic and popular mem-
bers. From the time that he entered college he was
known all over the campus for his bounding good-
nature and "pep." His ready smile and helping
hand won him friends universally. No party on
either side of the campus was complete without him.
In the summer of 1918 Frank enlisted in the Naval
Reserve and was on active duty until he returned
to Bates to grace the ranks of our quota of that
branch of service. His experience together with
his enthusiasm and good nature made him one of
our most efficient "non-coms." The whole class, the
whole college, mourned his untimely death, and
now cherish the memory of him, a student, a class-
mate, and a friend.

An ancient philosopher,

Once made the ringing remark,
'History repeats itself."

Pursuing its way from the

The grave of seniorhood
As a happy and powerful unit
In every phase of Bates life,
'Tis the Class of the
Good phrase, that!

In belles lettres, whatever they are;
In bid whist, pool, and lesser
And there's yo'

We, the Class of '23, have completed our second year at Bates, a year
of many changes, of many lessons learned, but withal a year of broader
friendships and closer comradeship.
We came to Bates in the fall of 1919 as the largest class ever entered,
not only in numbers but also in enthusiasm. Our propensities for getting
into water, both hot and cold, have never been equalled. Those members
who felt the soothing waters of Lake Andrews early determined to instill
the same calm of the watery wave upon the next class.
Our spirit has increased, but our number has been sadly depleted due
to matrimony and other failings. We began our Sophomore year by
trying to carry out a new program for initiating the Freshmen. Athletic
contests and prescribed initiations were substituted for the usual hazing.
Although we felt the loss of those who were compelled to take up other
work, those who remained won the Interclass Track Meet last fall. With
the girls' help the boys also won first place in the Outing Club Carnival, not
to mention a few B's in Pa Gould's history course.
We look back over the last two years seeing our failures and successes.
We look forward to the next two years with an earnest purpose to make the
most of ourselves here, that we may honor Bates when we leave her halls
to serve in the greater work outside.

THE CLASS of 1924
IS VERY proud
OF THE "Grand Old Man"
WHO'S IN our big class picture —
THE "GRAND Old Man"
WHO HAS passed on
AND WE ARE also proud
TO BE THE largest class
THAT EVER entered Bates.
WE THINK we're good, in
FACT, WE know we are.
EVER SINCE that Y. M.
RECEPTION, where "I was"
AND "You were"
TO THIS glorious day,
WHEN WE become Sophs,
WE THINK we've conducted ourselves
WITH THE modesty
BECOMING to verdant Freshmen.
AND WE'VE had some fine times —
THAT JAZZY Class Ride
WHERE INCIPIENT twosomes acted
ACCORDING to Hoyle. ,
AND THEN our Class Party
WITH MORE twosomes
AND ENTERTAINERS that put
AL JOLSON off the map.
AND YOU must admit
THAT OUR class is an example
OF THE SURVIVAL of the fittest.
AND WE select few that
REMAIN TO grace old '24
DO HUMBLY acknowledge with
THE INSPIRATION and guidance
OF THE staid old Seniors
WHO ARE now "rolling on."

Jordan Scientific Society, founded in 1910, has progressed until its
position among Bates' clubs is enviable. The purpose of the society, as
stated in the preamble of its constitution, is "to promote and further
interest in science ; to inspire the spirit of research ; and to increase the
scope of college instruction." Membership is limited to thirteen Seniors
and five Juniors, and every applicant must present high recommendations
from the heads of science departments.
At the bi-monthly meetings, members present papers on subjects in
which they are particularly interested. Often the speakers obtain first-
hand information by working during their vacations in factories and labor-
atories. For the past year, many papers have dealt with the industrial
application of scientific principles to commercial enterprises. At one open
meeting, Mr. L. B. Costello pointed out the aid that science has given to
rapid communication in Gathering the News. In addition to open meet-
ings, it is the policy of the society to present occasional educational motion
The annual scientific exhibition which is held every year, offers a very
unique and entertaining method of demonstrating in striking fashion the
highly advanced course of science at Bates. One night of this is devoted to
preparatory school pupils, and is attended by delegations from all over the
state. Carnegie is peopled with competent guides to demonstrate anything
from the dissection of a cat to the effect of radium or X-ray.
The society must always be deeply indebted to our late Dr. Jordan, its
beloved founder and sponsor.

Spofford Club, organized in 1910 under leadership of Prof. Spofford
for whom it was named, is unique among Bates clubs for the sustained
interest which makes possible its weekly meetings. For more satisfactory
criticism, the number of members is limited to fifteen, chosen from the
three upper classes for originality and excellence in some branch of writing.
The regular programs never become monotonous — there are short
stories, vers libre and verse otherwise, dramas, essays, formal and personal,
and even scenarios and musical comedy. A few titles are suggestive of
the work: Leaves, The Diary of a Man Who Is Losing His Mind; Scene
in the Rialto of Edgewater; Femininity; Just a Group of Old Maids; Smoke
Rings; Hey Gusl; Semper Scientia; Marya, Song of the Lost One; You
Tell Us, Ouija; Librarian's Day; Squire's Husking; They That Walk in
Darkness; Basket of Chrysanthemums; The Sun; A String of Pearls.
Occasionally a semi-social meeting is substituted, as when last fall a
camp supper was held by the river, where each member presented a bit of
original work. A part of the yearly work is Spofford Night, late in May,
when through the medium of dramas, interspersed with the reading of a
story or poem or two, the club tries to give the college and its friends an
idea of its work as well as genuine entertainment.
Not only to Prof. Spofford, its founder, but also to Prof. Baird, its
faculty member, the club acknowledges much.

The purpose of the Politics Club as set forth in its constitution is, in
short, "to provide an opportunity for the discussion of economic problems
and to investigate social and political problems of the present day." The
Society was founded in 1912 by the backing of Professor Gould. Its mem-
bership is limited to twenty men from the two upper classes, and its
regular meetings are held every other week.
This year the club has had more open meetings than ever before in
its history. In these open meetings the club has brought to the campus
such men as Baron Korff, who spoke on the Russian situation, and Hon.
R. A. McCauley, presidential candidate on the Single Tax ticket last elec-
tion. The club has put on two debates, the first on the merits of the two
presidential candidates, and the last debate between Dr. Harry W. Laidler,
secretary of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, and Prof. Carroll, on
socialism, which was a chance to get a thorough understanding of this
important current problem. The other meetings of the club are varied
with talks by club members and by some of our own faculty. In addition
to its regular work, is the annual ladies' night and the club banquet,
which has proved a great success.

The Military Science is one of the most active societies on the Campus.
Its primary object, as the name implies, is a thorough study of military
science in all of its phases. Many very interesting talks are given by
members, especially those who have taken active part in the World V/ar,
and in this way the application of the theory is well illustrated. The
society is becoming more and more popular every year. At present it con-
sists of twenty-six active members.
For the great success with which it has met the society is indebted to
Dr. Tubbs. It was he who organized the society and his interest in its
welfare is becoming greater from year to year. At present he is deliver-
ing a series of lectures on the World War, starting from the first battle
and explaining the military importance of each battle. He is constantly in
search of the truth about military affairs and is always eager to impart
his knowledge to the society.

Phil-Hellenic is one of the livest clubs on the campus, but because of the
scarcity of open meetings is not so well known as some of the others. All
the members, however, are enthusiastic about the work that is done. The
main purpose of the society is two-fold: to keep alive an interest in the
classics, and to further an understanding of the social attitude and condi-
tions of modern Greeks in America. To assist in carrying out the first
aim, a lecturer from Athens was secured to give an illustrated lecture on
Greece, and to promote intimacy and mutual understanding between the
college folk and the Greeks of Lewiston the annual reception was held with
unusual success. The activities of the club are manifold. Other speakers
have been secured this year, among whom were Dr. Tubbs, who lectured on
What the Greeks Have Given to Astronomy, and a local man, Mr. Petro-
polis, who spoke on his first experiences in America. The club will carry
through their successful line of endeavor with their annual Symposium late
in the spring.

Since 1915, we have been acknowledging many of our good times to
Enkuklios ; possibly because its membership includes all the girls accounts
for the fact that its social occasions are so particularly successful. Its pur-
pose is broadening every year, and in addition to its first endeavor of fur-
nishing social diversions, it now has taken upon itself the proper introduc-
tion of the new students to college life.
First in the fall came the Freshman initiation party which far sur-
passed its principal aim by furnishing an evening of unusual fun and jol-
lity. A bit later was an informal tea to the faculty ladies by the Juniors
and Seniors which was an excellent opportunity for getting acquainted.
Then was the informal party in the Gym, and on Washington's birthday the
annual reception, to which friends and relatives are invited. Later, in
June, there will be an outdoor party.
A large place, then, Enkuklios fills in our "mem" books and we're not
likely to forget it.

On the second and fourth Thursdays of every month, Fiske room be-
longs to the Seniority, which seldom finds reason to omit any of its meet-
ings. This society aims "to promote literary taste and ability" through the
reading and criticism of various works and once in a while an original
production. Membership depends upon rank in English courses, and the
past year has taken in those Seniors who have maintained a straight B,
and five Juniors, chosen to carry on the society.
Among the various authors whose lives and works have been discussed
are Emerson and James Whitcomb Riley, and among modern plays that of
John Drinkwater's Abraham Lincoln. There has been one open meeting,
a Contest of Wits, which proved to be original and entertaining. The
Kleptomaniac was very successfully presented to the college on the same
evening as Alethea's offering.
This society has a genuine place to fill and is certain to continue as one
of the most important of the girls' organizations.

Alethea, the reorganized form of U. A. C. C, founded in 1914, is com-
posed of Junior and Sophomore girls interested in literature, music, and art.
Programs have been given this year on many phases of work, including such
subjects as War Poetry, American Contemporary Drama, and Telling
Stories to Children. In the line of dramatics, Alethea has successfully
produced at Hathorn Hall a one-act farce entitled Just a Little Mistake,
combining with the play of Seniority to make an "Evening of Fun." The
purpose of the club is broad enough to give play to the particular capacities
of the members, and dances, readings and musical selections have been
enjoyed at the meetings. One meeting has been given over entirely to
original literary work. While the scope of the club is thus large and unre-
stricted, its work has been enjoyable and efficient.

"Le Petit Salon," founded in 1917, is composed of those students who
are especially interested in the study of the French language. Its object
is to promote a greater enthusiasm for French literature and for France.
The meetings are held bi-monthly; they take the form of a literary and
social gathering. Each year the members try to present a French play
before the whole college and, thus far, they have been very successful. The
membership is limited to thirty-five and each one has to take an active
part in its program during the year. The interest in the meetings is keen,
and the club keeps alive its ambitious progress by means of pertinent dis-
cussions. Originality is encouraged, and variety is the keynote of the

Many of the Juniors and Seniors of 1919. and 1920 spent every spare
moment enveloped in laboratory coats, and their devotion to science was
so great that they felt they should have some opportunity to meet and
discuss the latest developments of their particular branch of science. Dur-
ing its first year, Professor Ramsdell, the sponsor of the society, talked in
such an interesting manner concerning the fourth dimension that he was
asked to repeat the lecture in 1921. The membership consists of fifteen
from the two upper classes upon faculty recommendation in two or more
branches of science or two consecutive recommendations in the same de-
partment. Those represented are Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathe-
matics, and Forestry.
Every first and third Thursday evening, the traditions of Bates are
broken and Carnegie Science Hall is invaded by the girls. One of the most
helpful lectures so far this year was Photography by Dr. Whitehorne, who
brought much tangible evidence of his qualifications to speak on the sub-
ject. Some recent uses of selenium, especially in radio-photography, notes
on the metric system, the relation of Genesis I to science, are a few sub-
jects of the characteristic papers presented by members of the society.
Much discussion has taken place concerning conferring the B.S. degree to
the women of Bates College.
Trips to the Turner Center Creamery, Huston Bakery, and the Bates
Manufacturing Company are being arranged for the spring.

Macfarlane Club is one of the youngest musical clubs on the campus.
Four years ago this spring several students undertook the founding of a
club to create a love and appreciation for good music and its cultural and
aesthetic values. The club was named after Mr. Will C. Macfarlane, former
Municipal Organist of Portland, Maine.
At first the membership was limited to twelve active members and five
honorary members, including Mr. Macfarlane himself. Since then, how-
ever, it has been increased to twenty-four.
In the semi-monthly meetings both honorary and active members
participate. Papers and biographies of the leading composers, discussions
of the technical and scientific phases of the art, and individual renderings,
vocal and instrumental, are features of the work.

The college year 1920-1921 has been one of marked development for
the Outing Club. The club has had snowshoes, skiis, and toboggans for
the use of its members, although unfortunately the mildness of the win-
ter has made it impossible to use the equipment as much as would other-
wise have been the case. All winter, the club has kept the ice on Lake
Andrews clear of snow in order that the student body might have an oppor-
tunity to skate.
The Carnival was the crowning event of the winter season. It occu-
pied three days — Feb. 24, 25, and 26 — and was a most successful affair,
showing a marked improvement over the first season's carnival. The
snowshoeing, skiing, and skating stunts, the hockey game followed by a
general skate, and the culmination in the Carnival Masquerade, are inci-
dents long to be remembered.
The entire season's activities of the club have been highly successful, and
the possibilities for future improvement are unlimited. It is the ambi-
tion of the organization to make Bates known for its Outing Club and

In 1919, a new organization, the Bates Forum, came into existence on
the campus, conceived in the freedom of speech, and dedicated to the propo-
sition that both men and women of Bates should have a chance to express
their opinions on current subjects and discuss them freely.
Since that time, the Forum has steadily expanded and increased its
effectiveness in the line of work which it planned. Those students who
have given evidence of unusual ability in debating have become members.
Constant efforts have been made through bi-monthly meetings to under-
stand more fully the various forces working in the society in which we
live. There has also been time for the consideration of Bates' debating
achievements. No account of the Forum's activities would be complete
without mentioning the History of Bates' Debating, prepared by one of
its members. Not only unique and unusual was this work but one of
lasting value. Professor Carroll has entertained the society with various
accounts of the Log Cabin Period of forensic achievements at Bates.
Indeed, all that pertains to debating has been considered.
As for the future, it is hoped that the scope of work may be broadened
and that the Forum may become not only the radiating center for enthusi-
astic support for debating, but may be the most worth while organization
on the campus.

This year the girls' musical clubs have worked under great difficulties,
for it has been unusually hard to find necessary time for rehearsals, but
they have come through in fine fashion, surpassing anything that has
hitherto been accomplished by their organizations.
Together they have already given one concert out of town and are
arranging a program to give others on a trip to various places in the
vicinity of the college.
Much credit is due to the faithful work of the leaders and particularly
to the help and direction of Mr. Goss, the director of the choir, who gives
personal attention to the work of the clubs.
If the work of the organizations is carried on with the spirit of this
year, we predict an increasingly successful future.

The Bates College Choir renders valuable service and is appreciated by
the student body. It furnishes music for the daily meetings in chapel and
also for vesper and other religious services held throughout the year.
Much credit for the success of the organization belongs to the helpful
efforts of Mr. Goss, its musical director, for by means of his exceptional
ability this group of non-professional singers has been accomplishing
The citizens of Lewiston are also keenly appreciative of the college
choir and throng the chapel to hear the cantatas given in different years.
This year the cantata was Steiner's Crucifixion and was perhaps the best
It is the opinion of the student body that the college choir holds a fore-
most place among the organizations of the college.

Mandolin Club Leader, Robert Woodbury,
The Bates Glee and Mandolin Clubs under the respective leaderships of
Mr. Kenneth Steady and Mr. Robert Woodbury, enjoyed one of the most
successful seasons in the history of these combined organizations. Mr.
Elwood Ireland, the manager, planned a trip which included Roxbury,
Hingham, Woburn, Topsfield, and with the closing concert at Portland.
Good-sized audiences greeted the men at each of these concerts, and the
success of the trip may be seen from the fact that return concerts were
asked for in more than one of these cities.
The concert program was well up to the standard set in former years ;
by many it was thought to surpass anything ever put on heretofore. Mr.
George Duncan and Mr. Carl Rounds, the readers, scored emphatically at
every performance ; Mr. Maynard Moulton, the demon xylophone artist,
was a scintillant solo star ; the glee club was as much a success as ever ; the
mandolin club strummed its way into the hearts of the feminine portion
of each audience; without a hitch the entire program was a smooth-
working unit from initial chord to final note of the Alma Mater. The
final concert in Lewiston gave the student body a chance to hear the clubs,
and a gratifying number turned out. This last appearance of the season
was under the patronage of the local Bates Alumni Club, and was marked
by an innovation, in that the women of the college were permitted to
remain at the dance following the program.

The Student Council consists of four Seniors, three Juniors, two Sopho-
mores, and one Freshman — elected the latter part of the year. Its work
is both arbitrary and executive in nature. Full power for dealing sum-
marily and effectively with cases warranting severe treatment is invested
in the Student Council by the college authorities. Acting upon the suppo-
sition that the Council is thoroughly representative of the four classes,
its authority extends not only over cases concerning Freshmen and Sopho-
mores but over cases involving Juniors and Seniors as well.
At the beginning of this college year a week known as the Freshman
Initiation Period was successfully staged. The program consisted of vari-
ous athletic events between the two classes involving physical contact of
no uncertain type. The week ended up with a banquet attended by the
Freshmen and Sophomores and the members of the Student Council. Time
alone is needed to develop and perfect a system whereby the old Sopho-
more-versus-Freshman instinct will be thoroughly satisfied in no tame and
toneless manner but without the oftentimes harmful results caused by the
thoughtless hazing of the past.
The Student Council has had the whole-hearted cooperation of the col-
lege faculty and student body throughout the entire year.

Dissatisfaction with the present regime and Miss Niles' faith in the
girls as illustrated by their faithfulness in carrying out training rules for
the various teams, led to a very beneficial change in the organization of
Student Government. After many months of hard work and numberless
investigations of the organizations of other colleges, Miss Buswell and
Miss Niles submitted the results of their tasks to President Gray and a
committee of the student body. The plan was perfected by these individ-
uals and enthusiastically accepted by the girls.
On the 8th of March, 1921, Student Government went into effect with
Miss Niles and Mrs. Pomeroy as their very efficient faculty advisors, and
since that time has solved the problems of noisy halls and more serious
infractions. Incidentally this has done away with many of the old-time
Student Government has a most enthusiastic backing from the girls,
and all feel certain that this is an organization which will become a perma-
nent part of Bates College.

The scope of the Debating Council is wholly business. Not only does
it arrange the intercollegiate contests, but it determines the college debat-
ing policy and manages interscholastic debates.
During the present year the Council arranged and carried on the inter-
collegiate debates with Yale and Harvard Universities and attempted to
secure a debate with the University of Pennsylvania. In interscholastic
debating the Council has made the year the most successful in the College's
history. From a triple-triangular league of nine schools, the league was
developed into a combination of forty-five schools including the largest
schools in Maine. By promoting debating in our secondary schools, Bates
brings to the college many able debaters who become upholders of Bates'
The work of the Council is heavy, and its opportunity for service to
the college in maintaining the famous Bates record of thirty-nine victories
in fifty forensic contests, is unlimited.

The Y. M. C. A. this year has been attempting as always to serve the
men on the campus in its usual channels of helpfulness. In the fall the
annual membership campaign was held, and a great majority of the Fresh-
men enrolled either as active or associate members. The customary vol-
untary study groups were started soon after the opening of college with a
large enrollment from all of the classes. An unusual amount of interest,
due in large part to the hearty cooperation of the faculty leaders, was
evidenced by the regular attendance at the weekly meetings, which lasted
until the Christmas recess.
Plans are now under way for a series of Association meetings on the
subject of The Better Citizenship. Various types of leaders will be
secured for these meetings — all representative men in their own lines, such
as judges, lawyers, state legislators, doctors, ministers, industrial workers,
and newspaper editors. It is also hoped that a forum lecture and discus-
sion course can be arranged on topics relating to America's attitude toward
the Far East question. This course will be open to all men of the college,
and will meet in Chase Hall Monday evenings for an hour after supper
under the leadership of different capable men.
Early in 1921 an institute in "Practical Evangelism" was held for two
days in Chase Hall by Dr. Henry Wright of Yale, and representatives from
Bowdoin, Colby, and Bates were fortunate to be present at the five lectures
of this institute.

Wednesday nights come clean sheets, ice-cream, and Y. W. This most
vital organization for the purpose of leading people to Christ was
reorganized this year on the new basis of personal pledges instead of for-
mer church membership, and has an enrollment of one hundred and sixty
Attendance has been very high this year, and the range of the meetings
has been very broad. Tableaux were given to express the work of the
various departments of the Cabinet. Miss Mabel Googins spoke of her
work in Syria to help instill the spirit of Christ. There have been Maqua
rallies with the characteristic songs, industrial meetings, New Year reso-
lutions, January clearance sales, and talks by Dr. Tubbs. Who that attended
the Y. W. C. A. circus and heard the wild man roar and ate of the fac-
ulty food at the Y. W. Bazaar can forget the Y. W. C. A.? Our success
in cooperating with the city association is helping the work of American-
ization by teaching every night, classes of French, Greek, and Lithuanian
industrial girls, by presenting musicales for their entertainment, and by
learning from them the heart of old world culture. At the Old Ladies'
Home a song service is held every Sunday afternoon ; girl reserves are
being trained as leaders ; foreign work has been generously contributed
to — in short, the work of the Y. W. is worth-while.

For the year 1920-1921, this committee has not only made a financial
success and has received practically no complaints on the food but has also
charged lower board than any other college in New England. These
achievements have been due in large part to Professor Gould, who has
given unsparingly of his time and advice. Mrs. Hilton is not only an effi-
cient buyer and a snappy, energetic manager, but has won the love and
good-will of all the boys, who have given her the beloved title of "Mother
Hilton." The work of Mrs. Stevens is also highly commendable.
This loyal, enterprising group has been very zealous in their efforts to
maintain the highest possible attendance at the Commons and thus reduce
overhead expenses to a minimum. All complaints have been thoroughly
and cheerfully investigated, and efforts made to make the suggested
changes and readjustments.
It is only by a. whole-souled support of this college function that such
satisfactory results have been obtained.

The Bates Student is the only real students' paper on the campus, and
as such, is the only medium of expression that is open to the entire college.
Edited weekly throughout the college year, it is awaited by every student
as the only means of keeping up with all branches of college activities, and
in the end, cut up and fitted in, its news columns find their way into the
"Mem" books which are packed away after four years but are invariably
brought out again more times than we care to admit. Of course, the
alumni column has now been dropped in favor of the new Alumnus, which
covers the ground much more satisfactorily, since it has more space and
can be edited for one type of subscribers only.
For the year 1920, the paper was managed and edited by members of
1921, and from a financial and editorial viewpoint, their work has been
successful. The paper has changed somewhat from its form in previous
years. A local column of jokes and pertinent anecdotes was introduced,
which made a decided hit with the student body at least. The magazine
department was carried on with its monthly publications; and though its
readers were not so many as the weekly, nevertheless it is felt by many
that it fulfils the purpose of encouraging and presenting the literary
interests of the college.
The class of 1921 wishes to thank the college and outside friends for
the support they have received in this enterprise.

This year's Mirror management was a departure from the plan of
former Boards, and, we believe, a distinct step in advance for the produc-
tion of the most economical and most satisfactory college annual. Instead
of an editor-in-chief with his board of subordinate workers such as we
have had in previous years, our organization this year was made up of
coordinated editors, each supreme in his own department and in absolute
charge of his committee of sub-editors. From their own number of five,
the Board elected a chairman for purposes of occasional conferences where
policies of the various departments were discussed. If, however, a dis-
agreement on any point should have arisen, though in this year's manage-
ment this was not necessary, the question was to be submitted before a
class meeting for the vote of the entire group. In this way, the class has
felt more than ever before that in this check which it held, it has kept its
"finger in the pie," and that both the great amount of work on the office
of editor-in-chief but also an undue authority on the part of one man, has
been by this means obviated.
With the issue of 1917, the Mirror became not a class book as it had
been in previous years, but a college annual, representing more or less
fully the activities and interests of the entire college. Although its pro-
duction each year must mean not only a fairly large sum of money but
also much time and labor on the part of not a few of the board members,
we feel that it fills a very definte place in our lives as undergraduates, and
later on, as alumni.

The President of the Oxford Debating Union asks Bates to meet her in
debate at Oxford Union the 16th of June. This is the first international
college debate. The question: This House approves the American policy
of non-intervention in European affairs. The team: Robert B. Watts, '21,
Charles M. Starbird, '21, and Edward A. Morris, '21.
Bates 3; Harvard 0; January 15, 1921
Bates vs. University of Pennsylvania, Feb. 19, 1921
The year 1920-1921 has been a most successful one for Bates debating
teams. With victories over Cornell and Harvard during 1919-1920, as an
impetus, the Debating Council drew up a program which was even harder
for 1920-1921. Yale and Harvard were secured as opponents, and both
were defeated by unanimous decisions.
The Yale debate came December 11th on the question — Resolved: That
the A. B. C. powers should be invited by the United States to cooperate in
the establishment of a joint protectorate over Haiti. The Bates team,
which upheld the negative, was composed of William E. Young '24, Charles
M. Starbird '21, and Robert B. Watts '22. So marked was the superiority
of the Bates men over their opponents, that the audience fully expected the
unanimous decision for the negative, which the judges rendered.
The Harvard debate came January 15th on the question — Resolved :
That the government should own and operate the coal mines. Again Bates
upheld the negative and again received the unanimous decision of the
judges. The winning team consisted of Edward A. Morris '21, Aurie I.
Johnson '22, and Robert B. Watts '22.
These most recent victories make the Bates record even more unusual.
At present Bates teams have participated in fifty intercollegiate contests,
and have won thirty-nine of these arguments. That she is capable of
meeting teams from far larger institutions, is shown most conclusively by
the past two years' records.
A third debate was arranged for February 19th with the University
of Pennsylvania on the coal mine question. The same team which won
from Harvard was to have debated Pennsylvania, but the latter — on hear-
ing of the victory over Harvard — refused to carry out their agreement to
debate. Princeton also agreed to debate, but was unwilling to do so under
the usual conditions — insisting that twenty-four hours' preparation by
both teams was the only way she could debate. Numerous other colleges
and universities have challenged Bates during the year, including Boston
College, Holy Cross, Boston University, and Georgetown.
Aside from conducting these intercollegiate contests, the Council
arranged for debates between some thirty high schools and academies
throughout the State. These schools were arranged into triangles and the
first contests held in March. The nine schools which won in the first con-
tests were invited to come to the college and on April 15th, these schools
met in the semi-finals and finals of the high school league. Foxcroft Acad-
emy finally won, and thereby has possession of the Bates Debating League
Cup for one year. This work of the Council aroused much interest in
debating in the schools, and the finals brought many possible prospective
students to the Campus as guests of the College and Council.
Already the Council is formulating a program for next year which
promises to be as aggressive as that of this year. We lose two fine debat-
ers in Morris and Starbird of the Class of 1921. The three remaining vet-
erans, however, will form the backbone of a strong combination for next
year which will be capable of upholding the fine traditions of the college
in the field of debate.

Nearly every part in the exhibition was suggestive of our modern
Americanism and the effect it is having on the colleges of to-day. The
prize was given to Edward A. Morris, whose subject was America and
Internationalism. Norma Whiting, who spoke on Avocation, and Charles
Starbird, whose part was China, The Awakening, received honorable men-
tion. Others whose parts were selected for the exhibition were Ruth
Colburn, Torch or Beacon; Stanley W. Spratt, A Tribute to Mme. Curie;
Arlene Pike, The Poet of Heartsongs; Ernestine Philbrook, An Idealist;
Millard Webster, The Summons of the Flag; Gladys Hall, Industrial Prog-
ress; Winslow Anderson, Pains of Society; Gabrielle Roy, Real Interna-
tionalism; and Lewis Moore, The Negro Problem.

The debates for both the men and women were held on the same even-
ing, as was the arrangement last year. The question, "Resolved: That the
principles of the Smith-Towner Bill be enacted into legislation by Con-
gress," was debated by the girls, the affirmative by E. Marjorie Pillsbury
of Limington and Nelly K. Milliken of Augusta with Theodora R. Barent-
zen of Augusta, as alternate ; and the negative by Mildred F. Baker of
Randolph and Vivienne I. Rogers of Pittsfield with Alice M. Jesseman of
Lisbon, N. H., as alternate. The decision was awarded the negative team

Tune : ''Then You'll Remember Me."
Unformed and vague within our hearts,
A thought yet undefined —
A potent love, a yearning strange,
To thee our thought-hopes bind.
The depth of that we owe to thee
We cannot realize here,
And yet we feel our kinship true,
Our Alma Mater dear,
To thee our kinship, Alma Mater dear.
This symbol, love from all our future memory holds
For thee our Alma Mater, Alma Mater dear.
Dear Alma Mater, take this gift,
Our Ivy, loyal, true, —
Your faith we sons and daughters keep
All life's adventures through.
May thy ideals be ours by right,
When we have earned renown ;
Then shall we turn to thee, dear Bates,
And lay the laurels down,
For thee, dear Bates, we'll lay the laurels down.
Juy lay floem
I looked across the dull, low-rhythmed lakelet,
To where the birches fringe the water's edge,
And there beneath the glistening, misted tree-limbs,
I saw the drooping figure of my friend.
In fancy then I saw the love-moths gather,
Who weave the loom of friendship for the earth ;
And their playtime ravelling and twisting
The golden gauze of love to test its worth !
They swarmed upon the air, the trees, the pebbles,
Their filmy wings made heavy by the rain —
Then hovering suddenly they clung upon him,
Some swaying upward now and back again.
And soon I felt a vague, uncertain longing;
The heart of me was at the water's end.
I went to ask forgiveness and a handclasp —
To thank God for the realness of a friend.

The greatest gift of friend to friend
Is help, and a kindly hand,
Which Bates has giv'n o'er and o'er
To all her student band.
Today we plant the ivy green,
To grow from year to year,
A symbol of our loyalty
To Alma Mater dear.
Such service true can ne'er be paid,
In terms of life or time ;
We can but carry on and on,
Spirit of Bates sublime.
To Alma Maters o'er the world,
All students pledge their faith,
In gratitude for service given,
The gift of love 'til death.
A symbol of our life to be,
This ivy green shall grow,
Forever carrying on for Bates,
Our loyal hearts to show.

Under the guidance of Prof. Robinson, the Senior Class will this year
present the Hippolytus of Euripides on the evening of Class Day, June
21st. This is without doubt the most dramatic and best balanced of the
Euripides dramas and well suited for a pageantry effect in an out-door
Queen Phaedra's secret love for her husband's son, Hippolytus, is dis-
covered by her nurse, who treacherously betrays her mistress's confidence.
Phaedra, learning of this, upbraids her for her wickedness, and then in her
desperation, kills herself in order to save her honor. King Theseus
returns triumphant to greet his queen, and finds her dead. Enraged at
his son, he exiles him, and Hippolytus, true to his oath not to tell the
king, goes without a word. It is not until he is brought back dying of
serious wounds, and until Artemis herself intervenes, proclaiming the
innocence of Hippolytus, that the king at length asks his son's forgiveness.
The cast follows :

Bates is indeed proud of her graduates and it is due to them that Bates
was granted a charter of the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity in 1917. By this
fact was recognized our right to stand with the foremost colleges of
America. Bates is the third college in the state to win this honor, and as
such is the Gamma Chapter of Maine. Membership in the fraternity is
based on high scholarship and character, and the gold key, its symbol, is
everywhere accepted as a proof of fine intellectual distinction.
Many of the Bates faculty are enrolled in the list of membership. Some
have gained that distinction in other colleges and some as the charter
members here at Bates. Each spring not more than ten per cent are
elected from the Senior class and at the same time are chosen a very few
graduates of ten years before who have especially distinguished them-
selves in scholastic work.
Following are those chosen from the class of 1921: Winslow Anderson,
Maynard Johnson, Robert Jordan, Charles Starbird, Loys Wiles, Donald
Woodard, Mary Bartlett, Crete Carll, Theodora Dennison, Gladys Hall,
Rachel Knapp, and Florence Lindquist.

With a record of thirty-nine victories in fifty contests, debating has
assumed the role of the major sport at Bates. In recognition of this
record the National Council of Delta Sigma Rho granted to Bates a charter
for the first chapter in Maine. To date about fifty members have learned
that "Oratory is the Key to Power."
The annual initiation will take place this spring with three initiates:
Edward A. Morris '21, Aurie I. Johnson '22, and William E. Young '24.
Since its installation Delta Sigma Rho has played an important part in
Bates activities. The Delta Sigma Rho interscholastic debating cup has
drawn together a league of forty-five secondary schools in Maine and thus
furnishes valuable publicity for the college. The honor of becoming a
member of our chapter encourages many men to pass the grilling hours of
preparing for intercollegiate contests. From every standpoint the Bates
chapter of Delta Sigma Rho is a positive force in building a better, bigger
and busier Bates.

*Absent for the year after Oct. 10.
Reason of 1920
The Bates 1920 football team was undoubt-
edly one of the lightest college teams in the East.
Under the expert coaching of Tom Sullivan and
his assistants, Coach Smith and Jim Carroll, it
developed into a fighting aggregation which caused a great deal of trouble
for its opponents. Opening the season in impressive fashion with a vic-
tory over the Fort McKinley team, it was slow in rounding into shape;
but starting with the Maine game it gained momentum and wound up the
season with a hard-earned triumph over the heavy New York University
The game on Sept. 25 presented the first opportunity to size up our
football prospects. About forty men were tried out, of whom nine were
"B" men from the 1919 season. The absence of ex-Captain Cutler, Sau-
vage, Duffett and Tierney, however, made it evident that Coach Sullivan
had a difficult job ahead of him. Cutler, the clean, hard-fighting captain
of last year's eleven, reported for practice upon his arrival at college, but
owing to internal injuries he was forced to quit the squad. A back-field
combination consisting of Wiggin, Kelley, Finegan and Davis was early
decided on with Moulton, Rounds and Farley making effective substitu-
tions. A pick for the All-American team as an end himself, the coach
spent much time in developing ends. Canter, a veteran of the previous
season, performed in almost every game, while Gormley, Rounds and Canty
saw plenty of service. To fill the positions of tackles and guards was a
big problem, owing to the weight of the material reporting. Finally
Scott and Guiney worked very effectively in tackle positions and Capt.
Stonier and Newman, a freshman, proved themselves capable men against
stiff opposition, holding down the guards' berths. Sullivan, Seifert and
Mitchell did their share of the heavy work, also. The center position was
held down by Luce '22 with Seager and Canty substituting.
The team was equally well drilled on the offensive and defensive depart-
ments. Captain Stonier was a tower of strength at guard and his sterling
game against Hussey of Maine and Haines of Bowdoin caused him later
to be picked as All-Maine guard. Wiggin, although having a bone broken
in his hand during the N. H. State game, pluckily finished the season with
his hand in splints. He piloted the team with fine judgment and clever,
driving ability. To Kelley, captain-elect, and Davis '23 must be attributed
a large part of the team's success against Bowdoin and N. Y. University.
Kelley won fame as an open field runner and Davis proved to possess a
powerful plunging ability.
In the opening game with Fort McKinley, Bates allowed only one first
down and won handily, 34-0. The work of Wiggin and Davis was con-
In the second game against N. H. State "Dutch" Connors, their half-
back, performed in mid-season style and carried the ball across the Bates
line twice for the only touchdowns of the game. The N. H. State eleven
had fourteen veterans who heavily outweighed the Garnet. Wiggin was
forced to retire on account of a broken hand. It was only after a most
strenuous contest, however, that Bates was blanked, 14-0.
On Oct. 9, Bates met defeat at the hands of Mass. Aggies at Amherst,
by the score of 21-7. The Bay State aggregation uncorked a great kicking
game which proved disastrous for Bates.. Finegan, '24, electrified the
crowd when he ran back the kick-off for 90 yards and a touchdown. For
Mass. Aggies Capt. Poole, Grayson and Collins played a superb game.
For Bates, Scott at left tackle put up a fine brand of football, while
Moulton, Finegan, and Davis were the backfield stars.
The State Series
Colby came to Lewiston the following Saturday to open the Maine State
Championship Series with Bates. As Colby had played in no regular con-
tests up to that time, Bates was picked by the sporting writers as the
favorite. It was a clean, hard-fought game and resulted in a hard-earned
victory for Colby, 13-0. Both of the touchdowns came as a result of a
blocked punt and a fumble. The first score counted when Lowery of Colby
broke through the Bates line and blocked a punt. The ball rolled under
the Bates goalposts and Pulsifer of Colby fell on it for the touchdown.
The second touchdown resulted from a fumble of a bad pass, the ball rolling
under the posts and a Colby player landed on it for a touchdown.
Throughout the first half the Colby team showed the greater strength and
it was only the wonderful work of the Bates line which prevented them
from scoring more than once. When Wiggin was sent into the fray in the
last half with a bandaged hand Bates came back and gave a wonderful
exhibition of football.
If Colby had been allowed to retain her backfield combination through-
out the state series it is obvious that she would have been a serious con-
tender for the championship. As it was, however, one of her star backs
could not meet the eligibility rules and only Bates suffered a defeat at
her hands in this state.
Bates Championship Hopes Crimped in the Maine Game
It was a rousing and long-to-be-remembered send-off which all of Bates
gave to the team when it left for Orono the following Friday afternoon.
That the wonderful spirit and confidence of the Bates supporters in their
team was not misplaced, was demonstrated early in the first quarter of the
torrid contest which took place that Saturday afternoon. In the first half
every man on the Bates team played A-l football. Maine was completely
outclassed in every department of the game. The line plunging of Davis
and Moulton netted yard after yard, while Wiggin thrilled the stands time
and again by fast spectacular runs. Capt. Stonier had a field day with
Hussey of Maine. The first half ended with the score Bates, 8 ; Maine, 7.
In the second half a successful forward pass was fatal for Bates, despite
the fact that the line from end to end and four backfield men consistently
outplayed the Blue and White. It was one of the most sensational and
spectacular games of the year. The score card reads : Maine, 14 ; Bates, 8.
Bates Divides Honors with Bowdoin in a Scoreless Tie
On Oct. 30 Bates staged its last state series game with Bowdoin, and
before an overflowing crowd of 2500 the two old rivals fought to a 0-0 tie
in the most spectacular and thrilling battle ever seen on Garcelon Field.
The Bowdoin aggregation, very confident after its win over Colby, was
superior to Bates in the rushing game because if its heavier line and back
field. That the Garnet, however, was their equal in every other department
was early demonstrated. Bowdoin made frequent substitutions on account
of injuries, a fact which shows the fierceness of the milling and the hard
tackling of the Bates team. Capt. Stonier gave a peerless exhibition of
football at left guard. Time and again Davis at fullback and the sensa-
tion of the game, would crash through the Bowdoin line both on offense
and defense. Wiggin piloted the team with rare ability. The game was
hotly contested through the entire first half. Bates made threatening
gains toward the Bowdoin goal posts but the Black and White defense
would tighten and there was no scoring. In the second half Bowdoin
strengthened and their attack was imminent several times. At the con-
clusion of the deadlock it was evident that the teams were very evenly
matched. The whole Garnet outfit played extraordinary football and
presented a clean, hard-fighting machine on both offense and defense.
Bates Springs Surprise in New York
In the last game of the season Bates defeated New York University,
21-18. The New Yorkers' failure to kick goals after touchdowns settled
their fate. Both teams resorted to the forward passing game and in many
cases, successfully. The open field running of Kelley frequently thrilled
the stands. The alertness of Wiggin, however, in the last few minutes
of play, when he feigned sending Kelley through center with the ball and
circled the end himself for the last touchdown spelled defeat for New York
and a glorious victory for Bates.
Two wins, four losses, and a tie tells the history of our 1920 football

Hasphali Reason of 1920
When Bates pried the lid off the 1920 base-
ball season in a game April 16 with Fort Will-
iams there were four letter men upon whom our
hopes of a winning ball club rested. They were
Capt. Wiggin, Cusick, Dillon, and Van Vloten.
Burns, '20, was unable to report for early prac-
tice. These men later formed the nucleus of
one of the strongest teams ever representing
Bates College. It will be difficult to forget the
remarkable pitching of "Bill" Johnston, a Fresh-
man, as well as the superb fielding and hitting
of his classmates Sauvage and Donahue. The
excellent work of the two other new men, Lang-
ley and Ebner, will always be associated with
tthat championship outfit. To the veterans,
Capt. Wiggin, Burns, Van Vloten, Dillon, and
Cusick, must also be attributed a large share of
The team made a good record, losing only
five games out of fourteen played. And in the
Maine State Championship they dropped only
one to Maine. Their record alone is sufficient
to prove the calibre of the ball club. Praise to the second string
men who worked out faithfully and conscientiously should not be
neglected, while to the man who developed and coached such a team
must be given due credit. Coach Smith, laboring under the handicap of
being physical director and coach of baseball at the same time, met all
obstacles and overcame them. He apparently groomed the team with one
object in view and that was the Maine State Championship. He achieved
his object and then some. Satisfaction on the part of the entire student
body and the loyal rooters of Lewiston and Auburn and "success" by the
team were the two qualities that stand out pre-eminent in our 1920 baseball
In the opening game of the year against Fort Williams Coach Smith
tried out sixteen players. "Jim" Young and Van Vloten contributed two
hits apiece. Bates won handily, 5-4.
On April 19th Bowdoin defeated Bates in a loosely played game, 12-2.
"Dan" Mahoney used four pitchers in turn. "Bill" Johnston proved very
effective, Wiggin contributed a three-bagger and two singles.
On the Massachusetts trip Bates pinned a 14-3 defeat on Lowell Tex-
tile, registering 16 hits to Text's 5. Rain prevented games with Boston
University and New Hampshire State.
Cusick held Maine to two hits in the first game of the Maine State
Championship Series while his teammates rolled up a 2-0 lead. Donahue,
'23, hit the ball like a fiend, getting three hits for six bases in four times
at bat. Burns and Sauvage put up a clever fielding game.
In the next game against Boston University Bates was the victor, 5-3.
Sauvage tripled with the bases choked in the fourth stanza, tying the
score, while Dillon's triple and Van Vloten's double produced the winning
run in the fifth,
On May 7th Coach Smith sent his second string pitchers against St.
Anselm's College of New Hampshire. St. Anselm's won, 8-2.
Superb pitching by Bill Johnston was the feature of the game at Wa-
terville the following Saturday. Colby was shut out, 4-0. Capt. Buck-
nam of Colby, also, twirled an effective game. Sauvage, Donahue, and
Dillon exhibited a sterling brand of ball in the infield.
The following two games against Fort Williams at Portland and
Maine at Orono produced a win and a loss. Fort Williams was de-
feated, 12-1, while Maine turned the tables and won, 5-3.
On the Southern trip the Garnet dropped two loosely played games
to Brown and Boston College.
In the return game against Colby on Garcelon field, Bates won in a
close contest, 5-3. Donahue's hitting was the feature.
In the annual Memorial Day contest Bates practically clinched its
right to the State Championship title. Bowdoin was defeated, 3-2. Again
much credit is due to Johnston who entered the box after pitching a hard
game against Colby only two days before. Flinn pitched good ball for the
losers. Dillon had four assists and four putouts. Sauvage at the hot cor-
ner turned in some spectacular fielding. Capt. Wiggin and Dillon both
got two hits.
At Brunswick on the morning of June 4th before a record-breaking
crowd and amidst the battle of music, Capt. Wiggin led his charges to an-
other sensational win over our old rivals, Bowdoin, to the tune of 9-5. No
one who witnessed that game will ever forget it. Spectacular catches
by Wiggin, the work of Van Vloten behind the bat and "Norm" Sauvage
at third will linger longer in our memories than any World Series game.
It was a wonderful ending of a most successful season.
Reason af 1921
Under most favorable weather conditions forty men reported to Coach
Smith for baseball practice early in April. There were five letter men
available, Capt. Wiggin, Ebner, Langley and Cusick of last year's cham-
pions and Kennelly, who was not in college last year. From the outset it
was evident that the coach had a big job on his hands, both in developing
a reliable infield combination as well as a consistent battery department.
Kennelly, Cogan, Finnegan, Foynes, Jordan, and Moulton are at the time
of writing fighting hard for infield berths. In the battery department
Cusick, Jack Spratt and Spiller are the promising candidates for twirling
honors, while Partridge and Coronios will wear the mask. If hard work,
baseball and nothing but baseball will make a winning team, then it is a
sure bet that Capt. Wiggin and Coach Smith will have one before the
season is over.
In the games up to date the team has been losing. Jack Spratt, the
basketball captain, is pulling the all-around athlete stunt, for he is now
called upon to assume the bulk of the pitching duties. The infield is not a
smooth working and reliable combination, although at times they display
a brand of ball which means a pennant winner.
Wiggin, Langley and Ebner are the same safe guardians of the field
as last year. Partridge is showing up well behind the bat. With the
season still young it is difficult to prophesy as to championship qualities of
our 1921 ball club. Win or lose, however, Bates and its followers are
well assured that under the direction of Coach Smith and Capt. Wiggin
there will always be a clean, hard-fought contest.
In the opening game with Harvard, Bates held the Crimson nine even
for five stanzas. In the last half of the sixth and during a shower, four
runners crossed the plate, making the score Harvard 6, Bates 2. The
game was called at the end of that inning. The feature of this contest was
the home-run of Capt. Wiggin, Cusick twirling effectively.
In the next game, the annual exhibition game with Bowdoin on April
19, Jack Spratt pulled the unexpected and pitched a masterly game on the
long end of a 4-2 score. "Kippy" Jordan and Partridge batted hard for
Bates while Needleman and Clifford got two hits apiece for Bowdoin. The

1921 Relay Champions
The first call for the Bates hill-and-dalers was issued soon after college
opened. There were two letter men, the Buker twins, while Batten, Clif-
ford, Peterson, and C. T. Perkins had performed the previous season. Of
the new men Kimball '22 proved a Tartar as well as Kane '24. This squad
was moulded into the Maine State Champions and runners-up for the
New England cross-country honors. R. B. Buker '22 was the individual
star of this strong combination. He upset all dope at the N. E. Intercol-
legiates, when he passed MacMahon of Tech for a fast win. The work
of his twin brother, Richard S., also was of championship calibre, while
Kane, Kimball, and Batten showed their heels to the majority of the field
in both races. It was an extraordinarily strong team, whose record we
can well be proud of. Its success was due to faithful training under the
direction of Coach Johnstone.
The season opened Nov. 15 at Brunswick, and for the first time in the
history of cross-country running in the state of Maine, the U. of M. team
was forced to second by Bates, who turned in the low score of 21 points.
Maine rolled up 65 points for second place, while Bowdoin and Colby fin-
ished with 67 and 75, respectively, to their credit. The feature of the race
was the fifty-fifty finish of the Buker twins, who were 25 seconds ahead
of the rest of the field. Kane, a Freshman, pressed Hart of Bowdoin
closely for third position and Kimball sprang a delightful surprise when he
crossed the line in sixth position. Batten '23 gave the renowned Goodwin
the race of his life for seventh place and Clifford '23 was close on his heels.
In the N. E. Intercollegiates the following Saturday the Bates runners
again performed in big league fashion. The Garnet was defeated only by
Mass. Tech. The work of Raymond Buker, who defeated 80 men, is worthy
of highest commendation. Richard Buker, finishing strong in seventh
place, was the next Bates man, while Kane in thirteenth position, Kimball
in twentieth and Batten in fortieth place completed the scoring for Bates
with a total of 81 points, second only to Tech. with 59.
After completing a track season which
produced the international champion two-
miler, champions in the 100-yd. dash, the
880, the two-mile and discus throw in the
Maine Intercollegiates, seven first place
winners in a dual meet with New Hamp-
shire State, and an impressive victory
over the Tufts relay team in the B. A. A.
Indoor Meet, it is plain that by no other
word can the season be described than "a
success." Of course, a fair consideration
of the team clearly shows that it was weak
in jumps and weights and the failure to
place men in these events cost the team
two victories. Mention should be made,
also, of the loss of Farley in the last two
meets. He pulled a tendon in the New
Hampshire meet which put him out for
the rest of the season. Much praise should
be attributed to Coach Johnston, who has
worked untiringly with the thirty men
reporting daily for practice. Despite the
graduation of Captain Buker and Wiggin,
'21, men whom it will be difficult to replace
by superiors in their events, it is safe to
predict a glorious track season for next
year. Hodgman and Varney, quarter-
milers who have developed rapidly in the
last year, and Webster, Newell, Small and
Gross in the jumps will also be missed.
Regular practice for indoor track
started shortly after the cross-country sea-
son was over. With only the B. A. A.
Meet and the Interclass contests as oppor-
tunities for competition it was surprising
to note the large number of men who
trained faithfully during the hard winter
months. Finally, Wiggin and Farley
were chosen to enter the fifty-yard dash
in the B. A. A. Games, while Hodgman,
Batten '23, R. B. and R. S. Buker were the
fastest men for the triangular relay with Maine and Tufts. Maine, with
an exceptionally fleet quartet, won the race, and Bates easily led Tufts.
The 28th Annual Indoor Meet at City Hall was held March 9. It at-
tracted the usual crowd and owing to the closeness of the score, it proved
very interesting. The class of 1923, decided dark horses before the meet,
rolled up 37 points, 1921 was second with 34%, 1922 had 32 points, and
1924, 2&y*2. Farley, '24, took three first places. Irving, Davis, and Batten
RAYMOND B. BUKER
were the trio that won for 1923. It was only a side show, but worth double
the price to see our freshman relay team outdistance the Bowdoin fresh-
men by half a lap.

Bates sent three men, R. B. Buker, Farley '24, and Luce '22, to compete
with the country's best at the Penn Relay Carnival. Everyone knows the
story of Buker's victory in the international two-mile, after a sensational
sprinting finish. He was clocked in the fast time of 9.25 3-5s. Furnas
of Purdue University and Nightingale of West Virginia were the calibre
of men who were forced to read his number on the heart-breaking home
stretch. This accomplishment, by far, exceeds any other effort of a Bates
man in track athletics. It brings a national reputation to Buker and a
signal honor to our Alma Mater.
Farley entered the 100-yd. dash and, likewise, competed with the fleet-
est century men in America. In his heat of seven contestants, Farley was
a close second at the tape to Gourdin, famous Harvard sprinter. Luce, '22,
hurled the discus 116 ft. 4 in., and against such stiff competition made a
very commendable showing.

New Hampshire State won the dual meet with Bates on May 7 by a
score of 71-55. The weakness of Bates in the weight events was the chief
cause of defeat.
The feature of the meet was the easy manner in which Wiggin captured
first places in both the 100-yd. and 220-yd. This was a remarkable feat,
considering that Wiggin returned from the Massachusetts baseball trip,
without training in track, to compete in these events. Farley, '24, an ex-
cellent dash man, pulled a tendon in the first heat of the 100-yd. dash.
Burrill and Wilson took first places in the broad jump and pole vault,
respectively. In the distance runs, the Buker twins and Kane, '24, showed
their heels to the field. Rose, '23, and Jenkins, '22, did well in the hurdles.

On the following Saturday all of Bates went down to Bowdoin to cheer
the track team in the Maine Intercollegiates. Despite the rain, which
poured heavily all day and left the track mostly a pool of water and mud,
the meet was close and interesting. Bowdoin won with a total of 44 1-3
points ; Maine, 28 1-3 ; Colby, 26 1-3 ; Bates, 26.
Bowdoin's strength lay in the dashes, a slight margin in the jumps,
and broke even in the weights. Maine was strong in the weights and even
with Bowdoin in the jumps. Colby gathered her points in the hurdles
and kept even in runs and weights. Bates was superior in distance races,
good in dashes and weights, and outclassed in the hurdles and jumps.
In the century and furlong, our old standby, Wiggin, plodded through
water ankle deep to a spectacular win in the hundred, and took second in
the two-twenty. The most thrilling and heart-breaking race of the after-
noon was furnished by Charlie Kane in the half-mile. Stepping right out
in front for the first quarter, he never slackened a bit until he broke the
worsted by a comfortable margin over Goodwin of Bowdoin, who was dis-
playing a remarkable spurt. And from some place in the rear, Batten, '23,
came down the home stretch with an extraordinary burst of speed and just
missed nipping Herrick of Maine at the finish for third place by inches.
Mercer of Colby and Richard Buker also provided an afternoon's enter-
tainment in the mile run. The going was too muddy for the famous Buker
sprint, however, and our captain was forced to be content with second
position. The two-mile was all summer to Raymond Buker, who stepped
out front during the first quarter and led the field as he willed for the
remainder of the race. Kimball, '22, put up a wonderful fight in this race
for third place. In the discus-throw, Luce, '22, won handily.

Bates has a strong tennis team this year
which has already given a good account of
itself. The squad consists of Edward Roberts,
'23, and Oscar LeSieur, '22, both letter men, as
first doubles team, and Carl Purinton, '23, and
Donald Woodard, '21, as second doubles team.
On May 11, Bowdoin won the dual meet, four
matches to two. At that time it was evident
that the brand of tennis which would be seen
at the State meet would be above par. We were
fortunate to have the State meet held on our
own courts this spring and although we did not
take the championship Bates placed both
doubles teams and one singles player, Roberts,
in the semi-finals.
The tennis schedule this spring has been
greatly enlarged over previous years. Meets
with Colby and Boston University appear on
the list and it is hoped that Bates will be rep-
resented at Longwood this spring.
Among other men who have made a bid for
the team are Elwood Ireland, '22, a letter man,
and "Dick" Stanley, '24, who won the Fresh-
man Tennis Tournament Cup last fall.

Making its second appearance as a varsity hockey seven, the 1921 team
went through a successful season, despite the fact that it only won four
of the eight games played. The weather was peculiarly favorable for
hockey, especially from the spectator's standpoint. The team had many
loyal rooters among the people of Lewiston as well as a strong backing
from the student body.
Hockey practice started the first week in December with Coach-Captain
Cutler in charge of the work-outs. Capt. Cutler, Wiggin, and Roberts
were the only letter men available. Roberts, Cogan, Stanley, and Smith
were early decided upon for the forward positions, while Capt. Cutler,
Rounds, Belmore, Scott, and Delaney were the outer defense men to remain
on the squad. Wiggin was the goal tender in every game, and after Cut-
ler's graduation in February led the team for the remainder of the season.
The first game was with the veteran Boston College outfit, immediately
after the Christmas recess. Both sevens were ragged in team work and
Bates, especially, was in poor physical condition. After registering a lone
unearned tally in the first half, the septet from Boston came back strong
in the second half and rolled up a 5-0 score.
The next game with the fast Nibrocs of Berlin, N. H., was the most
sensational game of the season. From start to finish the game was a
series of thrills, and it required two over-time periods of ten minutes each
before Capt. Cutler, who displayed a sterling brand of hockey all season,
finally wended his way down the ice and lifted the puck by the vigilant
Berlin goal-tender. The work of Wiggin and Cutler was the feature of
The following Saturday, Coach Smith sent his charges against Bowdoin.
One sporting editor said in regard to the game that the superior team and
individual work of the fast Bates septet dazzled Bowdoin so that she lost
sight of the puck. Bowdoin was literally snowed under, although the score
of 4-0 only half tells the tale. Only the excellent work of Miguel in goal
kept the score down to reasonable bounds.
In the next game against the St. Dominiques of Lewiston, "Eddie" Rob-
erts, left wing, enjoyed a field day. He registered five out of ten tallies.
In one of the roughest games of the year, Bates suffered a 10-3 defeat
at the hands of the speedy Portland Country Club, the following Saturday.
On Feb. 14 the Berlin, N. H., team in winding up a hockey trip through
Canada, took the measure of Bates in another over-time game, 2-1.
Minus the services of Capt. Cutler in a return game on Washington's
Birthday, Bates again defeated her rival, Bowdoin, 2-0. Cogan '24 in
center position gave an excellent exhibition of fast skating and clever stick
In their final appearance the Garnet septet stacked up against the fast
Springfield Y. M. C. A. aggregation in the annual carnival game. This
game was perhaps the most sensational and closest of any game on the
home rink, and it was only after the most gruelling contest that Bates was
defeated, 2-1. Cogan was again the individual star, his repeated dashes
down the rink and clever stick work being the feature of the game.

Lack of favorable weather and rink conditions prevented the final
match to settle the controversy about interclass hockey. The preliminary
matches resulted as follows :
1921 three defeats, dropping one game to each of the three other classes.
1922 victory from 1921, defeat from 1923, and defeat from 1924.
1923 victory from 1921, and victory from 1922.
1924 victory from 1921, and victory from 1922.
Thus the Sophomores and the Freshmen were brought together for the
final match to decide the championship. It would have doubtless been
an interesting game to watch, but "Old Man Jupiter," ably seconded by
"Old Sol," decided that the contest should not take place, and it was neces-
sary to give up the program. The deadlock was not settled, and the Soph-
omores and Freshmen share the honors. Material for future varsity
squads was discovered, and we may expect to hear from some of the

On December 18, 1920, Bates was represented in basketball for the
first time. From that date to the end of the season the Garnet had a team
which she may well remember with pride. Many difficulties presented
themselves to Coach Smith in the early stages, for the sport was under-
going a change from pugilistic and "catch-as-catch-can" encounters to a
scientific, clean form of athletics. By rigid insistence that every man
observe the rules of the game, the Coach was able to develop a team that
was outclassed by New Hampshire State alone ; and the latter is acknowl-
edged as the champion of New England. To be sure, there were other
defeats, but the Garnet quintet were always in the same class as the
The success of a team lies in the man chosen to lead it, and especially
so if there have been no previous contests from which to judge the caliber
of the candidates. "Jack" Spratt was incontestably that man, and no
captain has ever faced a more dubious future, with practically an inexperi-
enced team, than he did when the season was young. With the conviction
that his men were truly capable of playing the game in an irreproachable
manner, "Jack" inspired them with his confidence and received their
whole cooperation. The scores attest the result. The Captain's own
ability was excelled by no man whom he faced in center position. His
record at foul shooting is remarkable, and he also caged the basket from
the floor more times than any of his teammates. Little wonder that "Jack"
was the idol of the Garnet basketball squad.
Davis and Burrill of '23 were the only other upperclassmen besides
Captain Spratt to win a place on the varsity aggregation. The first of
these proved always a dependable mainstay when the breaks were against
the Garnet. "Davie" was never rattled, and his quiet, determined atti-
tude often had a steadying influence at critical moments. Burrill, by hard,
conscientious work, was promoted to the first team about the middle of the
season. His exhibition at the Boston games was noteworthy.
The remainder of the team were Freshmen. Of these the pair from
Haverhill, Mass., Kempton and Coronios, were a duet that sang the swan
song for opponents who were too far gone to warble for themselves.
"Kempie," the baby of the squad, won the praise and admiration of every
Bates man and woman for his grit and skill against players who out-
weighed him from twenty to one hundred pounds. Always alert, never dis-
couraged, this diminutive flash of lightning, endowed with an eagle eye
for shooting baskets, was a thorn in the flesh for the opposition. Next to
"Jack," "Kempie" dropped the ball through the loop for the greatest num-
ber of points. "Jimmie," the other member of the couple, starred in finer
points of the game. With bad habits to overcome from former coaching,
this lad from the Bay State proved a valuable asset to the squad, especially
in the art of clever passing.
Johnson, another of Massachusetts' sons, while not a wizard at shooting,
played an excellent guarding game. Ever willing to give a little more
than expected, Walter worked hard to win when he participated in the
The rest of the squad hail from the Empire State. Wilson, Gormley,
and Reinhardsen, all started the season with a knowledge of the present
day game as each had trained under Coach Smith in prep, school days.
"Mike" Wilson was one of the best forwards of the season, and Gormley
was at center when "Jack" was out of the game. Both men exhibited
basketball of the highest quality.
The prospects of an excellent team next year are very promising.
Captain Spratt is the only man to graduate, and with the return of the
rest of the team and what new material may enter next fall, a champion-
ship aggregation may be expected.

The Athletic Board, formed by the officers and managers of the vari-
ous sports, carries on the business of the Association. The work of the
Board during the past year has been excellent. Great credit is due Min-
erva Cutler, who, as President of the Athletic Association, has headed the
Board with her usual straightforward judgment and efficiency.
Miss Davies came to us at the beginning of the year as Miss Niles'
assistant. She has been a great help for us in coaching our various teams
and we feel that we owe much to her knowledge and cheerful manner of
arousing pep and enthusiasm.
This year the wearing of the garnet and black was limited to those
who have made three first teams or more. The majority of girls may have
to work four years to wear the college colors. In 1920 the girls were
given the right to wear the "B" after being a member of ten first teams.
This means that no girl can possibly earn her "B" in less than two years
of hard and concentrated training.
The season opened with the Hare and Hound Chase which was held on
the river bank. The trails were difficult and the girls arrived with raven-
ous appetites which were amply satisfied. After supper they gathered
around the big bonfire and sang all the songs they knew and some that they
didn't know! This annual chase .is a custom that we would not care to
do away with as it affords us an opportunity to initiate the Freshmen girls
and to arouse enthusiasm for the coming sports.
Immediately after the Hare and Hound Chase, Hockey began. Volley-
ball, Basketball, Track, Soccer, and Tennis followed through the year.
The closing games of each season were displays of skill and spirit never
The annual Basketball Banquet closed the Basketball season. The
decorations were in keeping with St. Patrick's Day and the menu was all
that could be desired. The toasts were excellent and afterwards as the
girls sat singing in the soft candlelight waiting for "Karl" to take their
pictures, each thought in her heart how very worth while the strenuous
season just passed had been.
Thus have we, in happy sport and good comradeship, completed one
of the most satisfactory years in the history of Bates girls.
Hirst 3[eam (JfJjamptattB 1921
Hockey, our first fall sport, was a struggle from start to finish. All
classes showed the results of concentrated work and fine coaching and a
number of tie games resulted. The Seniors won the championship after
a hard-fought season. The skill displayed by the underclasses gives fine
promise for the coming season.

Volley ball has always been considered a rather tame sport. However,
it gives a much needed rest between the strenuous games of hockey and
basketball. It also gives the iodine bottle a rest, since there is no danger
whatever of getting hurt while playing volley ball. The practices are
miniature vaudeville shows. After close and interesting games the cham-
pionship went to the Juniors.

Basketball this year has been particularly successful. The vigor and
enthusiasm with which the games were played off won applause from both
sides of the campus. 1921 easily won the championship by a display of
speed and teamwork which has never been equalled at Bates. The other
teams showed the results of enthusiastic practice which prophesies well

Tennis holds the interest of everyone from those who can just hold a
racquet to those who play off challenges and win championships. The
side lines are always filled with cheering sections and interested spectators.
Last year 1921 won both singles and doubles, thus making Rachel Knapp
winner of the singles cup for three consecutive years and the doubles team
champions for two years.

In 1913 a cup was presented to the Women's Athletic Association by

competed for annually and to become the property of the class holding it
two years. Thus the cup has gone to the class winning the greatest num-
ber of championships in a year. The cup has been held for one year by
the classes of 1913, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919 and 1920. The class of 1921 won

Tallest — The girls can see no one else when Jack Spratt is around —
he gets unanimous attention for "lofty ambitions and slim means."
Between Norma Whiting and Marguerite Findlen, however, the entire class
could hardly decide, but in the end, Norma comes out a good first.
Shortest — Connie Walker gets everybody's vote. Girls were quite at
sea about the height of the boys and threw a line for McKinney, with Case
and Rand as far seconds.
Biggest Crab — Well, can't any of us say much, but we seemed to derive
great pleasure in using one ballot. Bridges — for someone else. There
was no question at all about Bridges — he pulls a royal flush. Paul and
Hamlin get half-hearted support. Among the girls it was hotly contested,
with Hodgdon and Coburn running neck to neck and Merrill, Fairweather
and Barnie outdistanced almost at the first. The home stretch revealed
Coburn in the lead by a length.
Man Hater — When it comes to the philosophical pastime of hating man,
Kate Jones makes away with the heavy laurels, with Carrie Doe as a limp-
ing second. Too bad, Carrie, where d'you get that limp?
Biggest Head — And we have to hand the ruby cuff-links to Hamlin and
Glad Hall for having good sized heads. By the way, Phil, you got a few
votes right here yourself.
Mischief Maker — There is within the confines of our clever class a
quiet, peaceful person with a truly angelic temperament. 0. Smith is
our mischief maker — though you'd never guess it from his conversational
line. "Angel" is his nickname among the ladies — "Kelly" with the mighty
sex. In the opinion of the co-eds there is no strenuously mischievous
damsel in '21 — but Carrie J. has tendencies in that direction, or as Mac

along hand-in-hand? They are Marceline, Allanby, Emma and Pasquale.

because of her kith and kins, and Pasquale — well, just to make a smooth-
Brilliant — Our shining wonders are Glad Hall and Jack Spratt. Their
wits are always on edge, their flashing repartee is actually worthy of repro-
duction — but we can't think of anything on the spur of the moment, so
we'll leave it at that.
Best Orator — Glad Hall and Starbird pile up the score for orating, with
Irma rolling a miserable 70 in useless pursuit.
Greatest Grind — It is notable that the candidates were few. May-
nard Johnson, it turns out, works hardest, outnumbering entirely Andy's
loyal supporters. Theda Bara Dennison represents the girls beyond com-
parison, though Eunice Hawkins and Connie Walker get honorable
Most Popular — The whole class loves to see long Jack Spratt coming,
though the girls just couldn't get Kelly Smith's sunny smile and Belmore's
classic nose out of mind. Kate Jones will be longest remembered and
Min Cutler almost as long. Irma was not far in the distance.
Best Dresser — Well, the girls ought to know, but they couldn't decide
for the life of them between Bob Jordan and Arthur Bates. Woodard and
McKinney also reflect the fashion sheet. Among the girls this was a
critical question. They finally decided on Findlin. Ernestine Philbrook
and Eddie Merrill know how to get themselves up. Ruth Bowie's crea-
tions were not forgotten, either.
Best Disposition — Well, you wouldn't think many would get in there —
especially if we have a room-mate, let alone two — but Kelly Smith seems to
have stood the test. Some thought Hutchinson ought to get it. The girls
know Sammy Brewster is a regular peach, in the morning as well as later
on, and Rae Knapp, Mary Bartlett and Mil Edwards are mighty good kids
to get along with.
Best Looking — This was a question — we never noticed our features
before. The girls prefer Al Dean, though Bob Jordan and Cusick and
Langley and Bond aren't bad at all. The Parker Hall bunch hold out for
Ernestine Philbrook and Hughes, but the girls tip the balance for Barb
Gould — bet the bob did that, Barb.
Most Efficient — Bill Hodgman's stern conducting of business affairs
has put him across with the girls all right. We saw the votes. Fe Cutler
is mighty nifty at managing, too, and Woodard and Jordan surely know
how to run things. Izzie and Phil stand out among the girls in the business
Biggest Eater — This is very interesting. The girls unanimously say
Hutchinson, though Cusick gets one vote from them — wonder if that was
Eddie's. Then Eunice Hawkins enjoys respite from study, and Fair-
weather and Connolly are disgusted to see that they have a good supply
of votes. Cora Cox is not forgotten.
Best Sport — Kate and Jack are the jolly good sports, the reg'lar people
of '21. Here's how, old dears, may you ever live up to your rep.
Best Dancers — Among the men, Harry Hall is said to shake a mean
hoof — and as for the ladies, we salaam to our modern Terpsichore,
Class Babies — Ever hear Marion remark that she was the youngest one
there. It was probably true enough, she is a young thing. We present the
pretty pink rattle to Marion and Hamlin, the embryonic wonders of our
Greatest Optimist — When it comes to throwing the sunny smile and
cheerful grin Ruth Stilesie and Kelly Smith are there with the berries —
Ruth gets an almost unanimous vote — though Sammie comes in with a
Sleepyheads — Cusick is our standard sleepyhead — no one else can hold a
candle to him. Ruth Fisher used to be a rather strenuous worshiper of
Morpheus but she's had an awakening.
Those Who Work Least — Yea, Emma ! Yea, Connolly ! Yea, Yea, Emma
Connolly ! This maddening cheer nearly drowns out the feeble attempt to
give the honors to Carrie J. They say that Jim Stonier and Cusick never
did a day's work, either.
Time Killer — This time we sing "All Hail, Emma" more loudly than
before and again we hear Carrie J. in the dim distance. The boys give two
rousing cheers for Jack Spratt.
Who Kids the Profs? — We see a demure little maid walk innocently up
to Monie to explain that she must leave English at 2 — Irma has an impor-
tant engagement with Music Hall. Close on her footsteps comes Mar-
guerite, who has to see Irma arrive at the show safely. Then there is
Dusty — what he has not told Prof. Britan first and last is not worth
Rand Hall Pest — Here is another honor to add to your Phi Beta Kappa,
Wiles. John Cusick comes in a close second, not on the Phi Beta Kappa,
The Laziest — Emma and John Cusick receive the unanimous vote of the
entire class. The oftly thing Emma can do is go to the movies, and John
clutters up Rand Hall steps.
Biggest Mushers — Wiles wins here again. John is his close rival again.
Ethel Fairweather was mentioned but we don't take this seriously.
Greatest Musician — Crete Carll and Kenneth Steady finish strong,
although closely followed by Carrie Jordan and Don Woodard. Someone
says Bill Langley is a musician.
Best Chaperoness — "Let's get Miss Niles" — this is what we all say.
How many wonderful times we have to look back upon with "Nilesy" as
our chaperone. Mrs. Shaffner is the favorite for the dances. "Wasn't
Mrs. Shaffner a peach to let us stay so long?"
Biggest Athlete — Of course this was mere form — Wlggin sweeps the
board. The girls have made a splash in collecting inter-class honors —
Miss Cutler is judged our best with Carrie Jordan, Jones and Carrie Doe
as no mean talent.
Biggest Vamps — Evidently we have them on both sides of the campus.
Wiles gets in on his devilish eyes and Newall with his ogling ones. Jack
gets a vote here, too, — ha, ha !
Bolsheviki — There are no Eolshevists among the men, but the girls are
swift to hand the honors to Marg Hill and Glad Hall, Marguerite leading
by many lengths. She is rather rough, eh, kids ?
Biggest Jazz Hounds — Harry Hall and Carrie J. are the jazz fiends — a
few miserable others follow in their wake, but the glory is not divided.
Most Talented — Irma and Jack walk away with the prize. Just like
that — without much struggle. They can do anything. V. is their middle
initial — stands for versatility.
Movie Fiend — Here's Emma again — yea boom ! And Mannie Smith.
Both are romantic souls.
The Wittiest — Irma and Jack again. Irma got her rep on bum puns
and Jack on general cleverness.
Who Goes Not to Chapel? — Proctors' records tell us that Irma and
Dusty are the guilty ones. But we didn't have to ask the proctors; the
thing is obvious.
Greatest Philosophers — Widber, Hill and Blackington, with Irma run-
ning weakly three lengths behind. Deep stuff, Irmie, kinder heavy for a
little gal. Those three are wonders — Omar Khayyams 'n' everything.
Thus endeth the revelation.

Sometime during the month of January, 1921, there took place a movie
show in Chase Hall. The fact that there was such a show in Chase Hall
is not a remarkable thing in itself, but at this particular performance Ken
Steady made an announcement which caused every person in the audience
to be on the qui vive. Let us listen to the announcement: "Ladies and
gentlemen, a dictagraph has been placed in the faculty room of R. W. H.,
which has recorded the exact words of the various members of our
faculty." A current of excitement, of curiosity, and of expectation per-
meates the assembly. Were the patents, copyrights, and formulas of the
Bates College Canning Factory at last to be made known to the public?
But there is no chance for prolonged meditation on this subject, for Mr.
Steady continues : "Doubtless you will be surprised to learn that this
recorded conversation took place at about two o'clock in the morning."
Could it be possible that the faculty were in session at that late hour?
(The Prayer Meeting investigations had ceased long ago.) But listen!
Ken has not finished his announcement. "I am sure that everyone will
rejoice to hear that this record will be played immediately for the enlight-
enment and amusement of the dear public." Now the audience braces
itself for what is to follow. Imagine the amazement and consternation of
everyone when the voices of President Gray, Professor Knapp, Professor
Hertell, Dr. Purinton, Professor Baird, Professor Chase and Dr. Britan
are heard speaking as they engage in a red-hot game of old-fashioned draw
Perfectly scandalous ! Yes, indeed, if true. However, in order that
the reputations of our most honored faculty may not be sullied, a few
words of explanation will certainly be a la mode, and here is the real truth
of the matter. Someone overheard "Dusty" Blackington mimicing several
Professors as his imagination told him they would sound if engaged in
playing poker. Presto!!! Why not make a record of it? The idea was
carried into execution a V instant; sl dictaphone was procured and Charlie
Stevens commissioned to operate it; then of course Dusty was Johnny-on-
the-spot to assist in its manufacture by imitating the voices of Prexy,
Freddie, Purry, Goosie and Doc Britan. Our friend, Cecil Holmes, suc-
cessfully produced the voices of Frenchie and Birdie. At frequent inter-
vals, a laughing chorus composed of the principal actors assisted by
Messrs. Spratt, Steady, and Stevens furnished ample volume of laughter.
The last step in the procedure before this record could be released to the
public was its censorship by "Bursar" W. Rowe.
The second performance of this production was before the Bates Round
Table the same evening that Dr. Britan won national fame by his treatise
on the mysteries of lovemaking. From then on it was played until com-
pletely worn out. We still think and talk about this record, however,
though its material substance perished long ago, and now that the record
itself is gone, we are recording on these pages the scenario just as it was
produced in January, 1921. If you want a vocalized edition, go to "Dusty"
and he will be more than glad to render it for you.
"Prexy" : "Er Professor Knapp, have you brought your paste-
boards with you?"
"Freddie" : "Oh, yes, I always carry them with me ; Donald gave me a
new pack for Chwistmas."
"Prexy" : "E all right ! Let's have a little game ! ! ! ! !"
"Freddie": "Shall we cut for deal, Pwesident Gway?"
"Goosie": " 'Frenchie,' give me a cigarette, will you?"
"Frenchie" : "Yah, all 'ight, all I haf iss a couple of Zi-as."
"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1, h-e-h— it rather looks as though I had to deal;
don't know what Mrs. Britan would say, he-e-h — ."
"Purry" : "Ace was always high when I was at Colby."
"Frenchie" : "Yah, yer not at Colby now."
"Goosie": "Freddie, give me a match, will you?"
"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1 — h-e-h — who opens? It takes jacks or better."
"Frenchie": "Yah, all 'ight, I'll open dis pot."
"Prexy" : "Er— ante up ! ! ! Everybody ! ! !"
"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1 — h-e-h — how many cards? What d'you say,
"Frenchie" : "I'll take a couple."
"Purry" : "Give me two cards."
"Birdie": "Dr. Purinton must be holding an ace. Therefore I shall
take three cards, however, er — I think I shall need more than three cards,
er — therefore I shall take four cards. Yes, sir! You may give me four
"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1, Goosie, what do you say?"
"Goosie" : "Shades of Orestes ! ! ! I shall be compelled to pass."
"Prexy" : "Well — er — if I may be permitted to use the expression, I —
er — will stand pat."
"Doc" B.: "H-e-h— who's betting?"
"Frenchie" : "All 'ight, a game of cards iss al'ays a 'ittle more inter-
esting with a little money on de table. I'll bet a couple of dollars. What
do you say, Dr. Purinton?"
"Purry" : "I will raise you three."
"Birdie" : "I — er — believe I can raise you four — er — yes, sir ! I will
raise you four."
"Purry" : "Well, I'll stay with you."
"Freddie" : "Oh, -yes, I'll stay."
"Prexy": "Well — er — I shall have to put in — er — shall I say — er —
seven bones !!!!!!"
"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1— h-e-h— guess I'll call yer."
"Frenchie" : "Yah, all 'ight, I haf a pair of queens, can you beat dat,
"Purry": "Ha! Ha! Ha! Frenchie, I have a flush."
"Goosie": "Judas Priest!!!! What do you think you've got there?"
Did they make a flush out of three spades and two clubs when you were
"Prexy" : "Er — they didn't do it that way at the University of Chicago,
"Freddie" : "Don't you s-see-e, Dr. Pewrinton, that in order to have a
fwlush, your cards must be all of the same s-suit?"
"Purry" : "Oh, yaas, I see, but I thought if they were all of one color
they would count just the same."
"Birdie" : "I have three queens, yes, sir ! I have three queens."
"Freddie": "It seems to me-e that you are twaveling pwetty fast,
Birdie, with fwee queens."
"Prexy": "Er — how do you get that way?????? Frenchie already has
three queens, er — how many are there in the pack, anyhow????"
"Birdie": "That's all right, President Gray, one of my queens is a
"Freddie" : "I guess I am out of it ; all I have is jacks and deuces."
"Prexy" : "Er — my hand reminds me of chapel : a full house."
"Goosie": "Is that your idea of humor, 'C. D.'?"
"Doc" B. : "W-e-1-1, h-e-h — guess the pot's mine, straight flush, king
high. H-e-h, dealer's s'posed to have the best hand anyhow — h-e-h — ."

As someone has well and wisely said, "The co-educational game at
Bates is what a man makes it." We study because we believe that one
gets only as much out of his courses as he puts into them. We wonder if
the same does not apply to 'Varsity Co-education. Almost without excep-
tion those who have been highly successful and have become "assistants"
in the course are those who sacrificed everything to their work. No study
was ever important enough to keep them away from a "pressing" engage-
ment, and it has been unauthoritatively reported that an occasional worker
has foregone all the joys of a visit to a College Commons in the pursuit of
his ambition. Yet, when we pause to think of the glory that the magnifi-
cent game brings to our class and to our college, can we not say that these
sacrifices are justified? Perhaps it was some of these diligent workers
that inspired Dr. Britan to write his famous essay on "The Whys and
Wherefores of Loving," causing Miss Early of the Boston American to
travel down to Bates, bringing fame and honor to the college and placing
our 'Varsity Co-educational Team in a position that is very unique among
the other college of the country.
And, as usual, 1921 plays a prominent position on that team. For
four years the men of '21 have worked diligently to uphold one of Bates'
most cherished traditions. In their Freshman year they were told that
Bates was among the first colleges in the country to admit women students,
and immediately clearly saw that it was their duty to make Bates the last
college to let them go again. Too much credit cannot be given to Pt'of.
Knapp, Dr. Hartshorn, and Dr. Britan for keeping the little spark of
romance alive and interest from lagging by their timely words of advice
and gentle suggestions. A statistical investigation of the class shows a
record to be proud of. While the character of this book does not admit
the publication of the names of some of our more prominent players an
idea of the interest shown in the sport can be gathered by a perusal of the
following data carefully gathered and compiled by Mr. Rowe for the use
of the Publicity Committee :
Data Gathered from Four Years of Observation of the Class of 1921
Those who co-educate 1 10
Those who co-educate under favorable circumstances 50
Those who co-educate under unfavorable circumstances 2
Those who co-educate under any sort of circumstances 50
Those who do not co-educate on account of a lack of sparring partners 8
Those counted twice 110
Grand total 110
Thus it will be readily seen wherein 1921 has established a precedent
to be idealized and, in so far as possible, approached by all future classes
and if, during its four year sojourn at Bates, it has succeeded in establish-
ing a lasting monument to its work it can only pass modestly on, letting
others observe its footprints in the sands of time.

42-2 rings and Barb dances down stairs : "That's my Thomas."
15-2 and 13-2 ring immediately and Phil starts down, crying: "For the
Lord's sake, Saff, hurry up."
Saff follows at once with a jovial: "Aw, gwan, I'll get there before
you do yet."
Min and Eddie in chorus : "We've been ready for ten minutes and those

despair, knowing full well it cannot be found.) "We'll have to look."
Em: "Here, take this one."

black velvet girdle on it — thought maybe you forgot it."

Snappy Synopsis with Dynamic Climax
I fall out 30 seconds before breakfast.
At table, I converse brightly by means of old puns and stale jokes in
the hope that my fellows may believe that I have been up an hour cram-
ming for our Ed. exam.
The 15 minutes before the bell I spend searching in vain for my Ed.
notes taken on two consecutive days last February.
I walk to class with some of the studious ones and casually extract
points here and there.
I march into Ed. room nonchalantly and smile confidently at my
instructor. (Lucky I do before I see the questions!)
I pucker my brows thoughtfully at the corner and scribble on.
I am obliged to cut chapel because someone has just told me that we
have a French exam on 18th century literature next hour. (Note: It
didn't do any good; everybody had taken his notebook with him.)
I enter the French room calm and unafraid. I appropriate my neigh-
bor's notebook on the pretext of looking up the style of Moliere, and in
l-minute-45-seconds review three months' notes.
Then I have a Spanish class, where I read at sight; but nobody knows
it because I am so good at it.
At 11 o'clock, I have an hour in which I should (1) run over to Lab.
(2) correct themes, (3) write an oration, (4) work on a thesis, (5) trot
about and pay some bills. I can't decide which, so I hail an old crony
with a tennis racquet and play two bum sets before dinner.
At Monie's English, I sit in the front seat and am unprepared. I am
the goat as usual and at 2 o'clock I decide I'll take in the movies. I go out.
Only I am reminded that I have Latin Comp. next hour, and prepare
for an hour's rest.
But unfortunately we are given out exam, sheets, and I have done only
two lessons this year. Of course I take it.
In desperation I go to the Qual.
I am followed angrily by the Business Manager of the Mirror. I had
promised to get material in a week ago and the whole thing is being held up.
When I return, there is a telephone call. I am way behind in correct-
ing my themes ; they must be in tomorrow.
Someone hands me a note from Prexy in which it is brought to my
attention that I have overcut French several times.
I am informed that the S. G. Board would like to meet me that evening.
Evidently I have put my foot in it again.
Still later by a phone call, I am informed that unless I get my oration
and incompletes passed in very, very soon, / shall not pass on.
I drag myself up the stairs to my room and affix to my door the sign,
"As you respect the dead, Pass Without Entering."
With a sweep of one arm I clear the table and gather my work unto me.
